    Idaho GOP Halts Presidential Caucuses

    The presidential caucus system established by the Idaho Republican Party in 2012 to give the state more say in the selection of a presidential candidate was killed by the Republican State Central Committee in Boise on Saturday.

    The GOP Central Committee is comprised of county leadership, including chairmen and women from each county. Dan Cravens, the Bingham County Republican Party chairman, said the majority of opposition came from North Idaho while leadership in Southeast Idaho voted to retain the caucus system.

    “It was a close vote within 20 votes,” Cravens said. “I was disappointed.”

    Great news! It was a really strange system designed to reward to top vote getter in an area and punish everyone else. It needed to go away. Hopefully the new system is much more honest and fair and gives regular Republicans in ID more say in the process.
