Ignoring the story
Fredi Simpson did a great job getting someone like David Keene, NRA president, to come to Wenatchee as guest speaker for their Republican Lincoln Day Dinner. He could have gone to any large population area and gotten a lot more media attention than here. As far as I know, The Wenatchee World didn’t have a reporter there. I’m quite sure they could have gotten in free. Even KPQ seemed to overlook the story but sure didn’t turn down the advertising which the local party provided them to get the word out.
