Idaho's Congressional Delegation Largely Silent In Debate Over Bergdahl's Release05:27

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl remains in an Army medical facility in San Antonio, Texas, continuing his rehabilitation and waiting for the investigation to begin into the circumstances surrounding his falling into the hands of the Afghan Taliban in 2009.

Meanwhile, the congressional delegation in Bergdahl's home state of Idaho are all responding differently to the return of their native son. For years, they pushed the Obama administration to secure his release. But, as the story turned into a partisan debate, the state's four Republicans have largely avoided the national fray.
