Huckleberries Hears …

… That prominent Kootenai County Republican Angela Cross wrote a terse letter to Reagan Republican leader Jeff Ward, chastizing him for urging a boycott his followers to boycott the county GOP Central Committee meeting last night. HucksOnline has obtained a copy of that letter. Cross, wife of Region 1 GOP Chairman John Cross, writes to Ward that “encouraging your fellow PC's (precinct committeemen) to not attend a 'legal' meeting of the KCRCC where the problem (plan to reduce voting precincts) can be discussed in an open forum and voted on rather than only you being able to use your bully pulpit, smacks of arrogance.” Also in the letter, Cross criticized Ward for being part of a public relations group (Ron Lahr's Strategery) that has made money from candidates endorsed by Reagan Republicans. Cross culminates her letter to Ward by saying: “Ronald Reagan would be ashamed of your behavior.”
