OfCoffee: We Weren’t ‘Targeting’

OfCoffee (RE: Reasonable Republicans target 5 North Idaho incumbents): It's important to point out that NIPAC isn't "targeting" Tea Party candidates. We are supporting candidates who want to focus on solving problems, who support the individual’s right to elect their senator, who agree that the Fed’s policies are not good but going to a gold standard is not the solution because it would precipitate economic chaos at this point in time. We are supporting candidates who want a bigger tent of fiscal conservatives and who don’t resort to personal attacks and name calling when disagreement arises. These are the reasons we are supporting challengers to 5 incumbents. Just sayin'.

Item: Here's the NIPAC board: Brad Corkill, Jim Addis, Katie Brodie, Dean Haagenson, Maggie Lyon, Ron Nilson, Sandy Patano, Jim Pierce, Jim Riley and Vaughn Ward.

Question: Do you consider each NIPAC board member to be a mainstream Idaho Republican?
