Labrador campaign: Ward website issue raises ‘character’ questions

Dennis Mansfield, campaign spokesman for GOP congressional candidate Raul Labrador, said he thinks the latest incident of rival GOP candidate Vaughn Ward's position statements on his campaign website matching another website's words raises character issues about Ward. "It is time for people who have endorsed Vaughn Ward to actively consider withdrawing their endorsements. This has gone on too long," Mansfield said. "There's a root cause here and the only thing, the only person who's connected to both plagiarism incidences is the candidate himself. In 30 years of politics, I've never seen a candidate melt down like this. Character is an issue."
