Idaho Goes For Romney

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has won Idaho’s Super Tuesday Republican caucus. Romney is likely to get all of Idaho’s 32 delegates after besting rivals Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and Newt  Gingrich. Romney coasted to victories in the  southern and eastern counties. The AP called the race before results were final in caucuses in Ada and Canyon, the two big population centers in the state. GOP organizers estimated 68,000 Republicans turned out statewide, including 9,000 people in Ada County and some 4,500 each in neighboring Canyon County and eastern Idaho’s Bonneville County.  Twin Falls County reportedly had between 2000 and 2500 voters show up.  They were running about 50 minutes behind at Canyon Ridge High School for the first round of voting.  Romney won the first round in Twin Falls County with nearly 56 percent of the vote.  Rick Santorum got just over 19 percent and Ron Paul just over 16 percent.  Newt Gingrich ran a distant fourth and Buddy Roamer got one vote.  Romney pretty much swept all Magic Valley Counties.  Ron Paul won in Camas County by two votes. State GOP officials say Ada County had the largest caucus in the entire country last night with nearly 10,000 voters showing up.  Canyon County was the second largest caucus in the country at the Idaho Center.
