Ron Pauler Seeks Zone 5 Seat

In the Zone 5 Coeur d'Alene School Board race, Tom Hearn will face Ron Paul activist Bjorn Handeen. Here's a Coeur d'Alene Press photo from Oct. 28, 2012, discussing Handeen's activism:

Ron Paul's North Idaho supporters in the 2008 presidential election have regrouped for 2012. Now calling themselves "North Idaho Patriots for Ron Paul 2012," they have been meeting regularly for the past few months. A scheduled gathering Thursday evening at the Donut House in Hayden attracted 40 people. An age-diverse group turned out to hear guest speaker Idaho State Rep. Phil Hart. Bjorn Handeen's baby daughter giggled and bounced on her father's lap as Hart spoke. "Many of the Ron Paulers from the last election have now been elected themselves, or joined other grassroots efforts," said Handeen, now a precinct committeeman in Coeur d'Alene's "Borah Triangle." "We need to cultivate a new group of activists." Things have changed since they first began grassroots campaigning for Paul in North Idaho, Handeen said. "Now, we're pretty integrated into the Republican party," he said. More here. (Duane Rasmussen photo of Bjorn Handeen)

Question: Phil Hart? Ron Paul? 'We're pretty integrated into the Republican Party"? Do you think Handeen is a clear endorsee for the Reagan Republicans?
