Christie: Not Your Mainstream Repubs

Christie Wood: Jeez…I thought I had seen everything when my opponent was an Aryan in the 2007 School Board election. Turns out Greg and Stephanie, and Michelle and Dave out in Post Falls have it just as bad. They are dealing with a PAC that in no way represents the Republicans I speak to on a daily basis. Jimmy Mac you nailed it. None of us who consider ourselves Republicans identify with the fringe ideology of the RR. So we need to seek out our own leaders in the next partisan election. But our school boards need to remain non-partisan so trustees will continue to focus on education being all things to all people, not a narrow definition dreamed up by RR candidates.

Question: Are the Reagan Republicans mainstream or fringe Kootenai County Republicans?
