Read through the news summary fast and you might get the impression that a measure passed by the Idaho Republican Party this weekend calling for replacing its presidential primary elections with caucuses might be an extension of the party-limiting wave the Gem GOP has been working on the last couple of years. The party-registration to vote in primary efforts, for example (which is going to go into effect) and the idea of allowing county Republican party officials decision which candidates can go on the ballot in Republican primaries (dropped for now, but it may be back). The proposal to end Idaho Republican Party use of the presidential primary, and likely cancelling that specific election altogether, is another matter/Randy Stapilus, Ridenbaugh Press. More here.

Question: Will Idaho's presidential choice be more interesting now that the state GOP has embraced a caucus system and Super Tuesday?
