Constitutionalists invite prez hopefuls

The Constitution Party of Idaho says it’s hoping to have multiple candidates competing in Idaho’s March presidential primary, and already has seen one of its party’s hopefuls, the Rev. Scott Copeland of Weatherford, Texas, come to Idaho to campaign, making a swing from Coeur d’Alene to Twin Falls in May. “Several other candidates have expressed interest,” said state party Chairman Floyd Whitley of Coeur d’Alene, though none of them have yet visited the Gem State to campaign. Whitley said the Constitution Party has more than 2,000 registered voters in Idaho. The winner of its presidential primary will get all of Idaho’s delegates to the national Constitution Party convention in Salt Lake City in April of 2016/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: If a Constitutionalist presidential candidate visited Idaho would the average Idahoan notice?
