Rep. Raul Labrador is running for governor in Idaho.

“Idaho needs a proven conservative leader who will stand against the special interests and politicians that have picked the winners and losers in our state Capitol for too long,” the Republican said in a statement. “Idaho needs a strong leader who will make government fair for everyone. Idaho needs a governor who will provide a new vision, a new approach and new leadership.”

The Associated Press reported that Mr. Labrador, an outspoken member of the House Freedom Caucus, filed his paperwork Tuesday to run for governor in 2018.

Lt. Gov. Brad Little, former Republican State Sen. Russ Fulcher and businessman Tommy Ahlquist also are running to replace Republican Gov. Butch Otter who decided against running for a fourth term.
