KCRCC Sets Rival Lincoln Day Event

Another meet and greet event has been set up for Republican primary candidates on April 12. The Kootenai County Republican Central Committee is hosting the event on the same day as its Lincoln Day Dinner, and it overlaps another luncheon meet and greet hosted by the North Idaho Political Action Committee. “We wanted to provide a direct opportunity to get the Republican candidates in front of the voters,” said KCRCC Chairman Neil Oliver, pictured. “This will be a good opportunity for the voters to ask questions of the candidates.” Oliver said the meet and greet, which will run from noon until 3 p.m. at the Post Falls American Legion, wasn't designed to compete with the NIPAC luncheon. The central committee decided to host the event for Republicans who cannot afford the $60 Lincoln Day Dinner, or NIPAC's $45 luncheon/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Why do you suppose the Kootenai County GOP Central Committee scheduled a Lincoln Day meet & greet at the same time as a Lincoln Day luncheon planned by the North Idaho PAC (a group of moderate Republicans)?
