Phil Hart R’s Fail To Bounce Roetter

Item: Roetter retains committeeman post: Official refused to support Phil Hart/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: A Kootenai County Republican Central Committeeman was allowed to keep his position on the board following a vote Tuesday evening. Matt Roetter was facing dismissal from his position as an officer of the KCRCC's executive board for his public refusal to support Phil Hart as a Republican candidate amid the Athol legislator's tax and timber controversies. The committee conducted the vote during its monthly meeting in executive session, closed to the public. Roetter retained his seat after 55 votes, including proxy votes, were cast.

Question: How would you characterize this setback to the Phil Hart branch of the Kootenai County Republican Party?
