Idaho GOP Gears Up for Straw Poll
(IDAHO FALLS) – Election day may be over, but state GOP leaders are gearing up for a presidential straw poll and primary in the next few months. The 2012 GOP primary elections will be closed to everyone but registered Republicans, a move leaders say gives the party an edge over outside detractors who intentionally vote for the weakest candidates. The straw poll will be held at the Riverside Hotel in Boise Jan. 6. The Super Tuesday primary is scheduled for March 6.
