Duane Rasmussen reports from Reagan Republican luncheon: Jeff Ward said he has already done an analysis of yesterdays election results in which Ann Seddon lost her seat to Dave Eubanks. Ward said generally, the Reagan Republicans failed with its networking. It a relationship campaign.  He also noted that both newspapers were against the Reagan Republicans.  Ron Lahr said that generally, the CDA Press is a good conservative paper, but this time it was against the Reagan Republicans. Lahr also said that the Spokesman Review has always been, and is, a liberal paper.   Lahr said he has always known the SR was Liberal because he grew up in Spokane and read the paper there.  Ward also said that he was so upset Tuesday night, that failed to fully recognize the fact that his wife had won.  It was a bitter sweet evening for Ward.  Sharon Culbreth suggested that Ward buy his wife some flowers.  Ward acknowledged that is would be a good idea.
