Salon, TPM Name Ward Worst Candidate

Meet Vaughn Ward. He’s running in today’s Republican primary in Idaho’s 1st Congressional District. He’s an Iraq War veteran. A former CIA operations officer. A fourth-generation Idaho native. Heck, Sarah Palin supports him. And after this spring’s disastrous, gaffe-filled primary campaign — during which Ward declared that Puerto Rico was a country, apparently plagiarized fellow candidates and Barack Obama, campaigned on cutting federal spending while his wife’s gig at Fannie Mae allowed Ward to go without an income, and re-released a six-month-old endorsement — Ward may be able to add another title to his resume: Worst candidate ever/Ben Frumin, TPM. More here.

  • H/T: Sara Anderson & BPoole

Question: C’mon, Ward isn’t even the worst candidate in the 1st Congressional District race. Harley Brown’d take those honors. What do you think of TPM’s assessment?
