3rd Party, Eynon In Simmering Feud

Six weeks after John Eynon left the Constitution Party to run on the GOP ticket, the third party and the state superintendent’s candidate are embroiled in a nasty breakup. Floyd Whitley, the Constitution Party’s acting chairman says Eynon remains in possession of party “property, records and minutes,” including party planning documents and platform outlines on economic initiatives and reform proposals. On Tuesday morning, Whitley shared his concerns, via email, with a variety of parties — including the state’s elections division, and Idaho Education News. Whitley says Eynon is interfering with the “normal business and ballot access of a duly qualified political party in the state of Idaho,” and demands the immediate return of the documents/Kevin Richert, The EDge.

Question: But I thought the Constitution Party is the same as the Republican Party in Idaho. I'm so confused. Thoughts?
