The 2014 Idaho Republican Party  State Convention is history folks…and what an historic event it was!

The Winners:

Ada County Delegation – Next time…follow the rules!

Alfred E. Newman – Cause we confused him with Brad Little (keep reading…chuckle to follow) 

Great quotes we’ve read about the convention:

As the so called ‘centrist’ Republicans decry the ‘gridlock’ at the recent state convention (purportedly caused by the deep divide within the Idaho State Republican Party), taxpayers should be rejoicing that finally top down policy is no longer the norm in the Idaho Republican Party.”   State Rep Vito Barbieri

“We have rules for a reason. This year they were enforced. Now the Establishment is crying foul, just like former Rep. Ed Morse running to the IRS because voters in his district fired him after one term. The sandbox has rules. Either abide by them or you don’t get to play.”  Ken De Vries – Delegate and Credentials Committee Member

“It was the Ultimate Cheater Smack Down!” John Green – Delegate and Convention Sergeant at Arms

“Dirty laundry = dirty politics. It is our job to keep hanging it out on the line.”
 Abbi Soneson – Delegate and Credentials Committee Member

“The Credentials Committee heard the testimony and determined that the Bannock County delegation was NOT duly elected. Don’t blame your failures on others. Do it right and there will be no problems.” Brent Regan- Delegate and Credentials Committee Member 

“With a total of 44 counties in Idaho, how is it that 41 were able to comply with the rules and 3 somehow couldn’t figure it out? Don Gary – Lawyer with unique ability to communicate to us mere mortal not lawyers

“What, me worry?” Butch Otter….Ha just kidding that was Alfred E. Newman…or was it Brad Little?

And the best one of all….

“I move to adjourn!” State Senator Bob Nonini – Delegate

    Isn’t it ironic that the very people who set out to RHINO-fy the Idaho Republican Party (platform, chairmanship, etc) ended up losing everything on account of the fact that they would rather hold up an entire convention than follow the rules. They have nobody else to blame but themselves for getting nothing of what they wanted. And what they wanted was to make our party less conservative.
