National Republican Party Leader Visits Idaho To Drum Up Support For Trump

J. Scott Applewhite

Republican National Committee co-chair Sharon Day spoke at the Ada County Republican Roundup at Governor Butch Otter’s ranch Tuesday. The Idaho visit was one of many she’s making to drum up support for presidential nominee Donald Trump and connect with local Republican leaders around the country.

Earlier in the day, she took questions from reporters at the Idaho Statehouse. According to the Eye on Boise blog, the GOP leader referred to the state as “Republican heaven.”

According to the latest poll from Idaho Politics Weekly, Trump is leading the race in Idaho, 44 percent to Hillary Clinton's 23 percent. In March, Trump lost the Idaho primary to Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
