Video Preview: The Elephant in the Room

Boise Weekly previews the Idaho Republican caucuses.

Once Republican presidential contenders clear tonight's races in Arizona and Michigan, they'll set their eyes on the prizes of Super Tuesday, when Idaho joins nine other states for a one-night mega-contest across five time zones (including Alaska).

With all four of the GOP's top contenders visiting Idaho this month, Republicans are expected to turn out in robust numbers at caucus locations in each of the Gem State's 44 counties.

But the real winner of Super Tuesday caucuses will be the Idaho Republican Party, which will register tens of thousands of citizens as Republicans just in time to participate in the May primary, where the GOP will select its candidates for Statehouse elections.
