AP: Palin coming to Idaho Friday for Ward

Here's a news item from The Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has agreed to come to Idaho to help generate support for Republican congressional candidate Vaughn Ward. Ward campaign spokesman Mike Tracy told The Associated Press Tuesday that Palin will attend a public campaign rally Friday in Boise. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee was an early supporter of Ward's bid to win the nomination to compete against Democrat Walt Minnick to represent Idaho's 1st Congressional District. In March, Palin endorsed Ward on her Facebook page. During the 2008 presidential race, Ward served as state director in Nevada in Sen. John McCain's bid for the White House. Palin was his running mate. Her visit comes five days before primary voters decide whether Ward or state Rep. Raul Labrador is best suited to take on Minnick in November.
