Ward to hit 14 Idaho stops in four days for ‘official announcement tour’

Though he's been actively campaigning since last spring, Vaughn Ward, GOP candidate for the 1st District congressional seat, has scheduled a 14-stop "Official Ward for Congress Announcement Tour" with "Special Guest Secretary Dirk Kempthorne," starting next Tuesday in Emmett. He'll hit Meridian, Boise, Bonners Ferry, Sandpoint, Post Falls, Wallace, St. Maries, Moscow, Lewiston, Grangeville, Wilder, Homedale and Caldwell, all by next Friday, including a Tuesday afternoon press conference with Kempthorne and state Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna on the Capitol steps. Ward, an Iraq war veteran and former Kempthorne aide, and state Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Eagle, are vying for a chance to challenge Democratic 1st District Rep. Walt Minnick in November.
