Vaughn Ward v Raul Labrador


Republican Vaughn Ward, running for office in Idaho’s first congressional district, claimed that Puerto Rico was a country during a debate. Asked about whether Puerto Rico should become a state, Ward answered:

“The problem with extending statehood to some, to any other country, is that then the infrastructure requirements…cost an enormous amount of money…

Ward’s opponent in the Republican primary, Raul Labrador, born in Puerto Rico, corrected him:

“I just need to correct, Puerto Rico is not a country, Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States. It’s about time that we took some civics lesson and we learn what Puerto Rico is.”

Ward then said, “I really don’t care what it is. I mean, it doesn’t matter. I don’t care.”
