The always reasonable Rod Beck (of rodbeckistan)says
Idaho Republicans have voted to close their primary elections to people not registered with the party.
Beck said the closed primary was needed to weed out those who were not true Republicans. He declined to name any lawmakers.Weed out those who aren't true Republicans. Drive them to the Dem Party, I guess.
Chuck Oxley, Idaho Democratic Party spokesman says
"This is further evidence that the far right wing has taken control of the Idaho Republican Party," Oxley said in a statement. "Fairly soon, I think, mainstream Republicans are going to wake up and find themselves in an ideological abyss."This will be fun to watch play out.
