Republicans gather for Lincoln Day

Hayden resident Jennifer Locke belted out a rendition of "God Bless the U.S.A." as more than 350 guests began their meal at the annual Lincoln Day Dinner on Saturday evening. The guests filled a conference room of The Coeur d'Alene Resort, where the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee hosted the dinner and fundraiser. "The Lincoln Day Dinner is the major fundraiser for the Republican Central Committee for Kootenai County," said Don Bradway, event chairman. He said the funds raised are used to run the committee's day-to-day expenses, pay for things like parade entry fees and flags, and support Republican candidates, primarily in local elections/Nancy Malone, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: It appears that the event was run by and for the Constitutional/Libertarian wing of the local Republican Party. I wonder how many mainstream Republicans were in attendance? Thoughts?
