Republican Sen. Ted Cruz will bring his presidential campaign to Coeur d’Alene on Saturday with a rally scheduled from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Idaho hosts its GOP presidential primary Tuesday.
The campaign also will watch results Saturday from Republican caucuses in Kentucky, Louisiana, Kansas and Maine. Cruz is in second place to Donald Trump in the GOP delegate race. He has won 226 delegates and Trump has clinched 319.
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio plans campaign stops Sunday evening in Idaho Falls and Boise.
Idaho has 32 delegates at stake in the Republican primary. To claim any portion of the state’s delegates, a candidate must win at least 20 percent of the statewide vote.
