Minnick campaign: Why would Palin stump for someone who didn’t vote for her?

Democratic Congressman Walt Minnick's campaign manager, John Foster, had this comment on the news that Sarah Palin will come to Boise on Friday to speak at a rally for GOP hopeful Vaughn Ward: "Can't understand why she's coming to campaign for someone who didn't vote for her."

The Associated Press reported last Thursday that even though Ward headed the McCain-Palin campaign in Nevada in 2008, he didn't vote in the 2008 general election. Ward told the AP that he had a hard time breaking away from the campaign to head back to Idaho to vote, and that the window for requesting an absentee ballot had closed by the time he realized he wouldn't be able to do so.
