The Kootenai County Republican Central Committee chose Neil Oliver as its new chairman at the Garden Plaza on Thursday night. Oliver edged Brent Regan 34-31 in voting by the precinct committee members. “I look forward to the challenge,” Oliver told nearly 200 attendees. “I hope to fill your needs and earn your trust. I'm a big follower of by-laws. Those by-laws were put in by the people before us.” Oliver said those in the political party will disagree, but it's important to respect each other and unify to change the direction of the country. “One of the most important things is the way the public views the Republican Party,” he said. “If we seem scattered, that reflects poorly on us”/Brian Walker, CdA Press.

Question: Yeah, I know Cindy published this last week while I was on vacation. But I wanted to break this down further by inviting insiders to tell us what happened in the Oliver win over Regan. Anyone?
