Rep. Raul Labrador, the Idaho Republican running for House majority leader, presided over chaos at this weekend's state GOP convention in Moscow, which abruptly adjourned Saturday after he failed to broker an agreement between the party's warring factions.

The inter-party sparring stems from the state's May 20 primary elections, which saw Establishment Republicans beat back Tea Party challengers in races across the state.

Though defeated at the ballot box, tea party-aligned delegates mirrored tactics previously employed by Idaho supporters of former Texas congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul, and stacked the convention's credentials committee with supporters.

Did you know that “Numbers USA” gave McCarthy a “F-minus” grade for Immigration in 2013-2014?

I think that might give Conservatives some political horsepower, even after the Whip election, if he wins.

Is an F grade good?

No.

F-minus is the worst grade you can get.

Numbers USA is a Conservative organization totally focused on Immigration.

They grade all 535 Congress people.

McCarthy's Congressional District is 40% Hispanic.

Essentially, he has to support Amnesty in order to get elected.

Sadly, Moscow, Russia would be better than Washington, DC.

No.

Kevin McCarthy, the guy who will likely be the next Majority Whip, represents CA-23, which is 40% Hispanic.
