2012 One year ago today
While Latah County considerably favored Ron Paul for the 2012 GOP presidential ticket, Idaho delegates at the Republican National Convention will stand behind Mitt Romney. Latah County GOP Chairman Walter Steed said because the former Michigan governor received 61 percent of votes in Idaho's caucuses March 6, 2012, all of Idaho's 32 allotted delegates will have to pick Romney in the first round of voting at the Republican National Convention in August. ... Snowstorms in March are not unusual for the Palouse, but the combination of heavy snow and rain has led to flood warnings issued for southwestern Latah County from the National Weather Service in Spokane.
