After reading Betsy Russell’s front-page April 30 article, “District 3 drawing challenges in GOP,” I became mystified by one organization cited: the “Kootenai County Reagan Republicans.” With credit given to its founder, Jeff Tyler, what do we know about this conservative-sounding nonentity?
It is not listed on the Idaho Secretary of State’s website. Some Internet research indicates it is currently headed up by Ron Lahr, with Jeff Tyler serving as vice president. Where are contributions going, and who is tracking who or what initiatives these funds are being used to support? How many other political candidates are associated with this group?
It would be nice to know before we head to the ballot box.
