Since Obama is now the presumptive Democrat nominee and McCain the presumptive Republican nominee, not much attention has been paid to yesterdays’s Idaho primary.
Ron Paul walked away with 24% of the vote and 5 delegates to the national convention, bringing his total official pledged delegate count to 35. Idaho County was his best showing with 35% of the vote to McCain’s 65%. Idaho also has three unpledged national delegates and six unpledged district delegates up for grabs.
These results are further proof that McCain’s “presumption” is not sitting well with many Republicans and it remains to be seen how many unpledged delegates Paul can pick up on his way to the convention. Either way, Paul seems poised to shake up the Republican Convention come September.
I’m in the mood for some French Fries, or should I say Freedom Fries? Thanks Idaho!
