Semanko: They Gotta Support Hart

Norm Semanko, chairman of the Idaho Republican Party, wrote a letter to Tina Jacobson, chairwoman of the Kootenai County Republican Party re: the unwillingness of precinct leaders Duane Rasmussen (No. 19) and Fred Meckel (No. 9) to pass out Phil Hart's literature door to door (and the refusal of state committeeman Matt Roetter to support Hart in his race against write-in Howard Griffiths): "If an individual precinct leader finds him/herself unable or unwilling to perform the basic duty of supporting and promoting one or more of our Republican nominees, he/she may
want to consider letting someone else serve in the position. In no event can an individual precinct leader, or the Party itself, support a write-in candidate over the Republican nominee." Full letter here.

Question: What should Duane, Fred, and Matt do?
