Anna Nelson, Liz Roberts and Beverly Harley are blue girls in a red state. Don't take our word for it. It says so on the stickers that they were selling at this morning's Ada County Democratic Presidential Caucus at Boise State's Morrison Center.

"Oh yeah, I've got a 'blue girl' bumper sticker on my car," said Nelson, 20, who will cast her very first presidential vote this year. "There are so many important issues in 2012: women's reproductive rights, immigration, health care and, of course, education."

The trio was staffing what they call the "swag" table, which featured bumper stickers, yard signs and buttons—all of which were available for a donation to the Democratic Party. Among the more-popular items were signs aimed at Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna: "Stop Lunacy."
