Oops! Wrong Larry Shown On Idaho Campaign Buttons

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) -- This one will be a must-have for political junkies who collect campaign buttons.

Some Democratic buttons made for distribution in Idaho have Barack Obama beside Senator Larry Craig. But don't expect the staunch Republican Craig to back the Democrat for president.

The button maker picked a picture of the wrong Idaho Larry.

They were supposed to show Larry LaRocco, a Democrat running for the Senate.

Craig isn't seeking re-election after being arrested in a Minnesota airport restroom sex sting.

Bill Hall, the editor emeritus of the Lewistown Tribune's editorial page, says he bought 10 from the button company's Web site before they were withdrawn and fixed.
