In a stunning upset victory for the Ron Paul Revolution, Presidential candidate Ron Paul obtained 24% of the vote in yesterday’s Republican primary in Idaho, by far his best showing in all primaries so far.
John McCain: 87,341 votes (70%, 17 delegates)
Ron Paul: 29,741 votes (24%, 5 delegates)
Uncommitted: 7,974 votes (6%, 1 delegate)
Congratulations to Idaho voters, to Ron Paul and to all supporters! Opposition to John McCain keeps growing and the message of liberty keeps gaining momentum.
Let’s redouble our efforts and work on further improving our results in the last two remaining primaries next week.
Remaining Republican primaries:
June 3, 2008: South Dakota and New Mexico
