Presidential Candidates Still Courting Idaho Voters
Presidential candidate Mitt Romney was in eastern Idaho yesterday and was greeted by what is reportedly one of the largest rallies yet on his campaign trail. Several thousand people showed up at the Skyline High School. With 32 delegates at stake , Idaho is a significant prize in a tight race. Earlier this month Rick Santorum visited Idaho. And Ron Paul, who was in Twin Falls earlier this month is planning a few more campaign stops in Idaho in advance of Tuesday’s caucus. The Texas congressman has scheduled campaign rallies in every corner of the state Monday and Tuesday. The visit will mark the second major swing through the state for Paul, who won 23 percent of the vote in Idaho’s 2008 Republican presidential primary. Paul will begin Monday with an event in Sandpoint. His campaign then heads south to the University of Idaho campus in Moscow before wrapping up in Idaho Falls. On Tuesday, Paul is expected to headline a rally at the Northwest Nazarene University campus in Nampa.
