The tea party group FreedomWorks is pushing Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-ID) for House Majority Leader.

The group is asking supporters to tell members of Congress to vote for Labrador in the upcoming majority leader election.

In a short interview with The Washington Post on Thursday night the Idaho Republican said he was thinking of running for the post.

“It’s not something that I’ve been planning,” Labrador said. Labrador also said that other members of Congress were urging him to run.
