Jeff Ward of the Reagan Republicans sent this e-mail this afternoon to friends who wondered what they should do at the Kootenai County GOP Central Committee meeting Tuesday night re: the Richard Mack Lincoln Day speech: "A number of people have contacted me concerning a strategy about Tuesdays Central Committee meeting. My recommendation is to have no meeting strategy. Our previous goal was to change the speaker at the Lincoln Day Dinner. Although we won a legal vote, a decision was made to disregard the will of the majority and Mr. Mack spoke anyway. Regardless of the numerous law and bylaws violations that took place, the milk is spilled and the point now is moot. Although the Mack invite was a mistake, I have to commend those who worked so hard on the Lincoln Day Dinner for making best out of a bad situation, as well as the financial angels and candidates to picked up the slack by sponsoring extra tables to avert disaster. I hope enough funds were raised to counteract the extra costs of the caucuses and pay our outstanding county quota to the state party." More here.
