Idaho Ready To Help Pick Nominee

Idaho Republicans play a role in Super Tuesday this evening as they gather throughout the state for presidential caucuses. It will be a new experience for many. For decades, the Idaho GOP has used the results of a presidential primary to award delegates to the candidates while Democrats have used caucuses. But the presidential primary was part of the state primary in May, which is usually so late that the nominee is already chosen. This year Idaho Republicans switched to the caucus system and scheduled it as early as the national party allows for awarding all of a state’s delegates, hoping to get some attention from the candidates. The tactic worked: All four presidential candidates visited the state, and party officials report voters are caught up in the excitement/Jim Camden, SR. More here.

Question: Are you going to participate in the Super Tuesday caucus election in Idaho today?
