The Idaho Press-Tribune reports that congressional candidate Vaughn Ward told its editorial board this morning that he “planned to announce a restructuring of his campaign staff on Saturday.” The paper reported, “While not offering specifics, Ward alluded to major changes and was accompanied by longtime GOP campaign strategist Mike Tracy”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

DFO: Gracious ... Betsy's all over this stuff. She called me a few minutes ago looking for numbers of some North Idaho politicos ... and wondering whether Mike Tracy, the respected former aide to Larry Craig, might be involved in Ward's restructuring of his campaign. I got off the phone with her at 1:11. She tweeted this -- and I re-tweeted for those of you who follow my Twitter 10 minutes later.
