Ward: Reagan Is Our Guiding Light

Kootenai County Reagan Republican President Jeff Ward reminded the troops Thursday the political group battles for a broad conservative coalition. “We stand by Ronald Reagan's view that an 80 percent friend is better than a 20 percent enemy,” Ward said, speaking at the group's luncheon at Fedora Pub and Grille. “That means that if we mainly agree on those broad conservative principles, we welcome everybody.” He also took the time to review the organization's priorities, including local political activism, he said. “We can't leave government to the big shots,” he told approximately 25 people at the luncheon. “We need more and more people to be active, and that is why Reagan Republicans knock on doors and stamp envelopes and make phone calls, and do the real work of making a consensus in this community and driving conservative principles in government”/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Can the Reagan Republicans regroup to be a force in the 2014 GOPrimary?
