Regan Pushes Whittle Event

I'm trying my darndest to figure out what political party Trustee Brent Regan belongs to. The Regan Republicans and United Conservatives of North Idaho are fond of him. Which means he's on the right edge of the local Republican scale. If he's a Republican. Libertarian Wayne Hoffman has added him to his Idaho Freedom Foundation board of directors. He's spoken at local Tea Party functions. Now, he's involved, with Tea Party Patriots of North Idaho and the Sandpoint Tea Party in bringing “Virtual President” Bill Whittle to Coeur d'Alene (at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 20, at Coeur d'Alene Inn). In an email promoting the event circulated by Regan and Pam Stout of the Sandpoint Tea Party, Regan writes: “We wanted to give the area conservative leaders the first opportunity to reserve tables.” No where in the email is the word “Republican” mentioned. So is Tea Party and Republican Party synonymous in Kootenai County and North Idaho? You can see flyer for Whittle event here.
