All Idaho GOP delegates go to Romney

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) ― Idaho Republicans voted to send their 32 delegates to the national convention this summer to support presidential candidate Mitt Romney. According to Idaho GOP rules, the delegates selected at Saturday's state convention are bound to support Romney during the first round of balloting at the five-day GOP national convention in Tampa Bay starting on Aug. 27. Before the state convention in Twin Falls, there had been murmurings that supporters of Ron Paul would openly seek to undermine Romney's support. That didn't materialize. Romney, who will face Democratic President Barack Obama, won Idaho's “Super Tuesday” caucus March 6, with Paul finishing a distant third behind Rick Santorum. Paul supporter Ryan Davidson, an Ada County delegate, said discussion of attempting to direct delegates away from Romney in Twin Falls was always “theoretical.”
