Another Hispanic Republican fires at Reid 

Raul Labrador, the GOP nominee against Rep. Walter Minnick, D-Idaho, is piling on Harry Reid’s remarks of yesterday:

“I cannot believe an elected leader of Harry Reid’s stature can continue to make racist comments about huge numbers of Americans. Harry Reid’s latest race-baited comments are simply unacceptable to all members of the Hispanic community. Denigrating the entire Republican Hispanic community, including myself, is simply outrageous. Contrary to Senator Reid’s beliefs, the Latino community is perfectly capable of making choices of political affiliation that are in its best interests, including being Republicans.”

Labrador, a staunch conservative who helped stop a tax increase by Idaho’s Republican governor, is of Puerto Rican extraction. He likes to joke that he might be the only Puerto Rican in his Congressional District.
