Here’s a link to my full story at spokesman.com on how congressional candidate Vaughn Ward this morning posted three new issue position statements on his campaign website, and portions of one of them match nearly word-for-word a California congressman’s re-election campaign website. Last night at 7 p.m., Ward campaign spokesman Mike Tracy, asked why the site still had no position statements on it after all were removed on Thursday, said, “We’re working on those and we just want to make sure that everything and every step we take … is absolutely accurate and that there are no issues and no problems with anything that we’re doing. That’s one of the corrective things. So if we take time to do it, it’s going to be because we want to make sure that there are no mistakes.”
The position statements this morning are posted under “issues” in the “Meet Vaughn” section of the campaign website; links that formerly led to position statements under the heading “Fighting for Idaho Values” on the main page still are inactive.
