Ward To RR Troops: Let’s Finish Work

In his Reagan Republican newsletter, which is now called the Kootenai Weekly Conservative, Jeff Ward issues a call to arms to "finish the work" his organization started two years ago by introducing partisanship to nonpartisan local elections:

"Just two years ago Reagan Republicans and our allies hit the streets, picked up the phones, stuffed the envelopes and created a revolution in Idaho politics that reverberated from here to Boise to Washington D.C. In May 2012, we surprised the political establishment by electing conservatives to school boards and maintaining highway district conservative leadership.  In November of the same year, every endorsed KCRR candidate won, returning conservative officeholders, defeating incumbents and decisively winning open seats.  2013 is the year to finish the work we began two years ago." Full newsletter here.

Question: Do you view this, as I do, as the Reagan Republicans call to arms to defend the three seats now held by Coeur d'Alene School District appointees and to take over the Coeur d'Alene mayor's seat and City Council? Do you think the Reagan Republicans will be successful?
