Reagan R Groups Endorse Differently

Beware the last-minute campaign message. On the eve of the Idaho primary that will determine many of the state’s top officeholders, the divisions in the Republican Party have led to recriminations of dirty tricks and deception. The quarreling factions are attempting to capitalize on the GOP faithful’s affinity for the late President Ronald Reagan. The result: a confusing jumble of similar names albeit with competing visions of who should lead the state. Because Idaho politics are dominated by the Republican Party, today’s primary is the election that matters most and all but determines who will win in the fall. Jeff Ward, who heads the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans, wants a criminal investigation into another GOP group that he said copied his group’s name in a campaign mailer complete with a slate of endorsements he opposes/Betsy Russell, SR. More here.

Question: OK, we've reached Primary Election Day 2014. Which dirty trick do you think was the worst of all?
