Reports of the GOPís death are greatly exaggerated. As Chairman of the Lincoln Day committee for the KCRCC, I am happy to report that our latest Lincoln Day, ďMaking America Great Again Begins In IdahoĒ set both attendance and fund raising records. This is not surprising as 53 percent of Kootenai County registered voters are affiliated with the Republican Party compared to 9 percent for Democrats. The Idaho GOP summer meeting, held in Coeur díAlene, was a HUGE success and featured the nationally known conservative author, Bill Whittle. During the Fourth of July parade, the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee handed out 11,500 American Flags for FREE to those attending. I especially enjoyed giving the flags to the children and watching their eyes light up with happiness.
There are people who are not happy with the success of the Kootenai County Republican Party, but most of them associate with the Democrats so no surprise there.
I do echo the recommendation that you attend a Central Committee meeting. You will find them to be well run, fair and open to all viewpoints. Judge for yourself rather than taking the word of people with an agenda.
