Vaughn Ward, the Sarah Palin-endorsed Republican primary candidate for Idaho's First Congressional District, had a bit of a rough run. And by that we mean his gaffes made George W. Bush look downright smart. Not only did the Iraq War vet insist Puerto Rico was a country in a debate, he also admitted to not voting in the 2008 election after serving as John McCain's campaign director in Nevada. And the cherry on the shit-show sundae? Days before the primary, a video was released that showed Ward plagiarizing one of President Barack Obama's speeches, almost word for word. We're proud to present Vaughn with the a-Ward for worst primary campaign.
