Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is offering words of support for Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador, who has announced a bid to become House majority leader.

Paul was the keynote speaker at Idaho's Republican Convention on Friday. The 2016 GOP presidential prospect was joined by Labrador and said, "I think Labrador would be a great leader."

Paul also spoke of the need for the various factions in the Republican Party to put aside their differences in the November election.

Labrador announced his candidacy for the leadership position earlier Friday. House Republicans will be picking a new majority leader to succeed Rep. Eric Cantor, who was defeated this week in Virginia's GOP primary.

California Rep. Kevin McCarthy is considered the front-runner to replace Cantor.
