Paul Attracts 1200 In Sandpoint

GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul drew a crowd of 1,200 supporters to a noon rally at the Bonner County Fairgrounds in Sandpoint today, the AP reports, a crowd the campaign called “massive;” this AP photo shows Paul addressing the crowd. The rally comes as Idaho's Super Tuesday GOP presidential caucus approaches tomorrow night; at 7 p.m. local time, in every one of the state's 44 counties, Republicans will gather at local caucuses to decide which GOP candidate the state should support for the presidential nomination/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Even if Ron Paul won Sandpoint, would it matter in the grander scheme of things?
