The South Chicagoan: Will Ward mis-speak matter on Tuesday?

Gregory Tejada offers us his take on a Congressional race in Idaho where a former US Marine Corps officer faces off against a Puerto Rican in a Republican primary. This Marine officer, Vaughn Ward, has made statements where he believed Puerto Rico was an independent nation. Just as he was about to announce his opposition to Puerto Rican statehood.

BTW, Electronic Villiage had looked at a couple of stories of politicians targeting candidates of Indian descent in their races. It seems like Gov. Bobby Jindahl may have started a trend. There are other Indians running for offices in Southern states, but this time those candidates of note are actually Democrats. Even worse they're opponents in Democrat primaries are making their race an issue!
