The Ward campaign is estimating there are 1,500 people at the rally, which is starting now with state Sen. John McGee, R-Caldwell, taking the podium. "Canyon County is Vaughn Ward country," he declared; Canyon County is where McGee is from, though the rally is taking place in Boise, which is in Ada County. "This is the most Republican state in the union and it's time to send a Republican back to represent us in the 1st Congressional District," McGee said; he then introduced former Idaho Secretary of State Pete Cenarrusa to lead the pledge of allegiance, which was followed by an invocation.
