Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has Idaho's GOP elite backing his candidacy - including Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter and U.S. Sen. Jim Risch. Rick Santorum's support includes Idaho State Treasurer Ron Crane.
On Friday, Ron Paul was endorsed by New Plymouth Republican Sen. Monty Pearce, six-term member of the Idaho Legislature and chairman of the Senate Resources and Environment Committee.
"Ron Paul is the only one who will apoint judges both to the Supreme and district courts that are constitutionalists," said Pearce.
