Labrador Earns Endorsement of Businessman and BSU Bronco Standout Ian Johnson
I’ll stand with Raúl, too.
Ian Johnson, an Idaho small business owner and Boise State football icon, is endorsing Raúl Labrador for governor.
Johnson, a 2006 first team All-America running back, scored the winning points in BSU’s stunning upset of Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. After a brief NFL career, Johnson began working in the insurance industry in Boise. He now owns the Ian Johnson Insurance Agency and ranks in the top 5 percent of agents nationally in his company.
Labrador, elected to Congress in 2010, has led the charge to reform the politics-as-usual mindset in our nation’s capital, and is now seeking to make Idaho’s state government more efficient and accountable to the people.
Labrador and Johnson agree that success in athletics, business and government requires good teamwork and strong leadership.
“I’m supporting Raúl Labrador for many reasons, but primarily because I trust him, and I know that we can count on him to keep his word,” Johnson said. “I’ve met Raúl numerous times, and each time I gained a greater appreciation for his consistency, honesty, and willingness to tell you exactly what he thinks. He’s a man of integrity, and saying this is the greatest compliment I can give.”
“Having Ian’s support is important to me, but I’m truly honored that I’ve earned his trust,” said Labrador. “I know that as a leader, my word is more valuable than anything else. My consistent and conservative record of public service, along with my reputation for being forthright, direct, and honest is anchored by this belief.”
Raúl Labrador, 49, is the conservative frontrunner in the Idaho Republican gubernatorial primary and currently represents Idaho’s First Congressional District. He and his wife Becca are proud of their five children and one daughter-in-law, and are happily expecting their first grandchild.
