Idaho GOP Plan Caucus Tweaks

Idaho’s Republican Party is celebrating after its first-ever presidential caucus, and what many participants called a very successful event in terms of participation and political relevancy. Despite the event’s initial success, party organizers say they’ll likely make a number of changes to the caucus in preparation for the 2016 presidential race. Idaho GOP Executive Director Jonathan Parker says there were some growing pains and some kinks that need to be worked through but at the end of the night we were very pleased with the results. Parker says  44,000 people cast final votes, and as many as 65,000 participated in statewide county caucus events.   Idaho’s GOP switched to a Super Tuesday caucus from its previous May primary for two very specific reasons.  First, the Idaho GOP wanted to bring candidates to Idaho and build the party.  Second, the GOP wanted to make Idaho more relevant in the national presidential race.  Parker says there will  possibly be changes in future caucuses including eliminating the multiple rounds of balloting.  But he says one thing that won’t change, likely, is the Super Tuesday date for Idaho’s caucus.  He predicts the Idaho GOP will caucus as early as the national committee will allow.
