Palin Coming To Boise To Back Ward

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/Associated Press. More here.

DFO: Raul Labrador learned from spokesman Dennis Mansfield about this as I was conducting the quick online interview with him this afternoon. He didn't seem pleased. But he said when I directly questioned him about it that people will be turning out in Boise to see Palin, not necessarily to support Ward.

Question: Is Labrador right about Palin's appearance on behalf of Ward?
