Can Ron Paul win Idaho in tonight's first ever Idaho GOP presidential caucuses? Marc Johnson's “The Johnson Post” takes a look at the question today, writing that despite the endorsement of Mitt Romney by much of Idaho's GOP establishment, “The insurgent wing of the Idaho GOP, the group that has come to dominate a good deal of the party’s business, is entirely capable of sending Romney and his Idaho supporters a big message.” Johnson writes, “We’ll see if they do. It may be worth noting that while Paul was drawing 1,300 up the road in Sandpoint (yesterday), Gov. Butch Otter, a Romney surrogate, was speaking to a crowd of 100 in Coeur d’Alene.” You can read Johnson's full post here.
