Any room left in the pup tent?

October 18, 2022

When Dorothy Moon became the leader of the Idaho Republican Party this past summer she assured all Republicans the Party had a large tent, big enough for every Republican in the state. However after recent events one wonders if that is still the case. Even Moon herself seems to have walked back that big tent image. She recently announced that defeated Republicans in the primary who are now supporting Independents and some Democrats should reconsider whether they really are Republicans.

Moon’s message has resonated even locally with the Bonner County Republican Central Committee, which is not endorsing quite a few Republican candidates including Sage Dixon and Mark Sauter for state legislature positions, and neither the party’s candidates for governor and lieutenant governor spots.

So what happened to the big tent? Seems more like a pup tent to me.
