Romney On Idaho GOP Presidential Caucus Ballot

BOISE, ID – Idaho Republican lawmakers put Mitt Romney on the GOP caucus ballot Wednesday.  That’s after Romney’s first place win in New Hampshire Tuesday night.

Governor Butch Otter:  “I’ll now deliver his application.”

Norm Semanko:  “Thank you Governor.”

U.S. Senator Jim Risch:  “Norm, I have the filing fee of two thousand dollars I’m presenting to you on behalf of the next President of the United States.”

Norm  Semanko:  “Thank you Senator.  We’re pleased to have the Governor on the ballot.”

Idaho’s GOP caucus is set for March 6th when nine other states will hold their primaries or caucuses.  Idaho has 32 possible winner-take-all delegates for the GOP nominating convention.  Presidential candidate Ron Paul filed with the Idaho Republican Party on Friday.
