Ron Paul Attracts 2000 In Moscow

Republican presidential candidate and Texas Congressman Ron Paul spent part of Super Tuesday Eve at the University of Idaho, where he spoke to a crowd about twice as big as the one that attended a similar Feb. 17 rally in Moscow. More than 2,000 people attended Monday's town hall meeting, where Paul spoke for about half an hour before taking several questions from both the public and members of the media. He also spoke to audiences in Sandpoint and Idaho Falls on Monday before heading to Nampa, Idaho, and Fargo, N.D., today.Paul encouraged attendees at the UI to participate in today's Idaho Republican caucus, which begins at 7 p.m. at four locations in Latah County - Moscow Junior High School, Troy High School, the Kendrick firehouse and the Palouse River Community Center in Princeton/Holly Bowen, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here. (Matt Mills McKnight/AP photo: Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, tours the manufacturing facility at Quest Aircraft Company with employee Paul Branham in Sandpoint  earlier Monday)

Question: Will Ron Paul win Idaho? And/or: Would Mitt Romney have attracted a big crowd had he visited Coeur d'Alene in person Monday?
