County GOP Votes 31-30 Against Mack

The Kootenai County Republican Central Committee opposed the guest speaker planned for local Republicans' annual Lincoln Day Dinner by a 31-30 vote tonight. Richard Mack, an Arizona sheriff in the 1990s, has been under fire locally since 14 GOP leaders signed a letter opposing his appearance at the annual fundraiser. The vote taken tonight was launched on a motion by Jeff Ward, a precinct committeeman and key Reagan Republicans figure. HucksOnline hasn't learned whether the vote will be binding and Mack disinvited. After the meeting, Ward was confronted by angry Coeur d'Alene Councilman Steve Adams. The meeting adjourned without the scheduled Central Committee practice for the March 6 caucuses.
