"A lot of us had been asking for this for a long time," said Rep. Raul R. Labrador, Idaho Republican. "I am really excited that Trey Gowdy is chairing that committee. He is just somebody who is a dogged seeker of the truth, and that is what we are looking for here. I think it is the right thing and I really praise the speaker for it, for making the right decision on that."
Rep. Raul R. Labrador said Friday that he's jumping into the race for House Majority Leader, giving tea party members a champion in the contest to replace fallen Majority Leader Eric Cantor.
