Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio appear headed to Idaho to speak with voters before this state’s Republican presidential primary.
Cruz will be in Coeur d’Alene 2 p.m. Saturday at the North Idaho Fairgrounds. That event is free to the public, according to an Idaho Republican Party press release.
Rubio will speak in Idaho Falls at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, according to an EventBrite listing. He’s then listed as being in Boise for another rally at 7:30 p.m. that same evening. Both events are free for the public, but attendees need to register ahead of time, according to the event pages.
The Idaho Falls rally will be at a hanger owned by Melaleuca, according to the East Idaho News. Company CEO Frank VanderSloot is a prominent Idaho Republican donor who endorsed Rubio last fall. In Boise, he’ll tentatively speak at the Jackson Jet Center, according to David Johnston, executive director of the Idaho GOP.
While Donald Trump has not given the state party any indication that he will visit Idaho, the presence of the other candidates might change Trump’s mind, Johnston said.
