NAMPA, Idaho — Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is urging voters in Idaho to caucus for him on the promise of a smaller federal government, $1 trillion in federal spending cuts and an administration dedicated to liberty.
Paul told people at a noon event in Nampa, Idaho, that he chose to spend Super Tuesday in Idaho because it's one of the states where poll numbers show his campaign is strongest.
The Texas congressman is hoping for a victory in at least one of the Super Tuesday caucus states: Idaho, Alaska and North Dakota.
He apologized for being unable to take questions in Nampa and said he had to get on a plane for a campaign stop in North Dakota.
The crowd applauded Paul when he panned the nation's "entitlement system."
