Ada County Gets Caucus Bill: $35K

Southwestern Idaho Republicans celebrated the March 6 “Super Tuesday” presidential caucus in Ada County as the nation's biggest event of its kind, with some 9,000 people descending on Boise State University's Taco Bell Arena. “We're thrilled,” Ada County GOP Chairman Dwight Johnson said that night. After the party, however, came the hangover: A surprise $35,000 bill. The hefty tab has left the group with little to give Republican contenders for the Nov. 6 election. “We've been out scraping,” concedes Darrel McRoberts, a former Idaho GOP state senator and Ada County GOP treasurer. “We don't have anything near like we did two years ago”/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Was there an upside to the Idaho GOP presidential caucus?
