Reagan Republicans Fight For Name

During the recent Primary Season the KCRR was attacked by the opponents of our endorsed candidates in an attempt to steal our name - the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans. While this attempt to intimidate us into not using our name in support of our endorsed candidates failed, while setting a new low for despicable behavior in Kootenai County politics, now that the primary is over we are still fighting to protect our name. We have retained the services of a lawyer and will be pursuing this legal battle as far as we have to in order to retain sole use of our name. More here.

Question: Who do you want to win the battle for the name of Reagan Republicans?

One Too Many Reagan Repub Groups?

Item: Name's the same: Reagan Republicans feel like victims of 'identity theft'/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press

A Berry Picker emails: “I heard some scuttlebutt about the (Reagan Republicans) being under investigation. It looks like they didn't register with the Secretary of State's office and now someone else has registered/hijacked the name Reagan Republicans and a bunch of related names. They were all atwitter about it over at Chuckleberries and posted a link to the SOS site. I checked it out and it looks like there's no Ron Lahr or Jeff Ward listed on there. … I've never heard of the guy who registered all these names, but it looks like Republican politics is getting weirder by the minute.” Hayden attorney Scott Poorman, representing the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans and Clifford Noll, has sent Jeff Ward and Ron Lahr a letter demanding that they cease using the name Kootenai County Reagan Republicans “for any purpose whatsoever.” The letter is posted on the Chuckleberries Online Web site here. Another Berry Picker emailed Huckleberries: “This has turned into a war it would appear.” Chuckleberries supports United Conservatives of North Idaho, an arch rival of the Ward/Lahr Reagan Republicans. Or whatever they're calling themselves now.
