GOP Bus Tour In Town Today, Too

Just got a call from Jeff Ward of the state Republican Party who wants to remind Hucks Nation that the GOP bus tour with top elected Republican officials will be making several stops in Kootenai County today, touching down in Spirit Lake City Park. Other stops include Golden Spike Estates in Rathdrum, the American Legion Hall in Athol, Super 1 in Hayden, Idaho Veneer in Post Falls, Kootenai County Republican Headquarters and North Idaho Victory Center in Coeur d’Alene. I joked with him that they need to be careful not to be mistaken for the Westboro Baptist Church crew today because Coeur d'Alene area residents are pretty jumpy when it comes to strangers from other states today -- and everyone knows that most elected officials in this state live and work in the Kingdom of Ada. Press release here.

  • Photo: State Sen. Shawn Keough tweeted the photo above. She said she's on the bus. But I don't know where the photo was taken. I just sent her a message to discover the bus's whereabout.
