Canyon GOP VC: McGee Goofed Up

Vice Chairman Steve Kren supports Sen. John McGee remaining as the county party chairman, and said McGee would have been better served with an up-or-down vote Tuesday night. “I think John has the support of the Central Committee,” said Kren, a former GOP lawmaker. “I think that he should have just had a vote and put it behind him. But now this is going to carry on for another month. It was my opinion to end it last night.” Kren said the Caldwell lawmaker and Senate Majority Caucus chairman didn't ask his advice. But McGee did consult with Kren about his plan to refer to the party's Executive Committee a resolution calling for an investigation of McGee's recent DUI guilty plea and a subsequent vote on whether to remove McGee as chairman/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman.

Question: What would you counsel McGee to do at this point? Or has he reached the point of no return?
