Eye On Boise

Henderson joined Ward campaign two weeks ago

Al Henderson, whom the Associated Press reports will be Vaughn Ward’s new campaign manager, signed on with Ward’s campaign on April 29 as senior finance director. A Ward press release issued on that date said, “Henderson, a successful, long-time GOP fundraiser, will help the Ward campaign build on their tremendous fundraising success. Last quarter, Ward set an Idaho Republican congressional primary record with total receipts of over $518k from more than 1,100 contributors.” In the press release, Henderson praised Ward as “an honorable man and a true conservative.” Among Idaho GOP campaigns Henderson’s worked on in the past are those of Butch Otter, Steve Symms and Larry Craig; he also was a longtime Craig staffer.

Ward is scheduled to appear on Boise talk radio on Nate Shelman’s program on 670 KBOI at 5 p.m. Boise time - that’s now. In the quarter-hour before that program starts, the station has aired one of rival Raul Labrador’s hard-hitting new radio campaign ads, portraying Ward as beholden to out-of-state contributors.
