AP: O’Barto out, Tracy, Henderson in

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Republican congressional candidate Vaughn Ward’s campaign manager is stepping down — 12 days before the primary and in the wake of a series of political missteps. Ward campaign consultant Mike Tracy confirmed Friday that Ward has accepted the resignation of Ryan O’Barto, who also served as spokesman. Tracy, a press secretary for former Idaho Sen. Larry Craig, told The Associated Press he will begin serving as campaign spokesman. The latest mishap for Ward emerged Thursday when it was reported that position statements on Ward’s website appeared to have been cut and pasted from other GOP candidate websites and writings. O’Barto said the material posted on the website was a technical error. Tracy also said Al Henderson, who managed Craig’s 1990 senate campaign, will be Ward’s new campaign manager.
