Item: Primary election over, but GOP rift continues: Jorgenson still upset about Rally Right group/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press
More Info: Rally Right takes firm stances on conservative values, including God as the country’s founder, states’ rights that prohibit government intrusion, and low taxation, among others. One of their slogans is: “It’s easier to fix the Republican Party than start a third party.”
They enjoyed success Tuesday night too, one member said, as at least 41 of the 71 precinct candidates who were unofficially supported as being conservative by the group, won.
But others in the Republican Party are concerned about the direction of the party following Tuesday’s results. They said Hart is recruiting candidates to support his ultra-conservative platform for North Idaho politics, and is unofficially supported by Rally Right.
Question: Do you want the local Republican Party to swing more to the right?
