Idaho GOP divided over event speaker

IDAHO FALLS – An organizer for an Idaho Republican Party fundraiser said she’s having trouble selling tickets because the main speaker is a tea party representative from Washington, D.C., rather than an Idaho candidate.

Marsha Bjornn, who served as the GOP Region 7 chairwoman for 15 years, told the Post Register that her replacement, Bryan Smith, brushed aside opinions of traditional Republicans in selecting Matt Kibbe, president and CEO of Freedom Works.

“People want to hear our candidates,” she said. “They don’t want to pay money to hear a tea partyer from Washington, D.C., speak.” Full story.

Is there anything the Idaho GOP isn't divided about at this point?
