Will The Real Reagan Republican Please Stand Up? President Jeff Ward of the original Kootenai County Reagan Republicans appears pensive in this photo snapped at a Reagan Republican luncheon by Duane Rasmussen. Ward has spent a trying few days after the Jeff Alltus' group that has been vying for the Reagan Republican name circulated a controversial mailing endorsing candidates that would be more in line with the Rally Right/United Conservatives of North Idaho organizations. Ward is also running in a three-way GOPrimary race in House District 3 for the Republican nomination. Ward wasn't endorsed by the other Reagan Republican organization.
