Here’s video of State Treasurer Ron Crane reporting the vote of Idaho’s delegates Tuesday at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Invoking Idaho’s “famous potatoes,” Crane, who leads Idaho’s convention delegation, then presented Idaho’s strong Red State credentials.

“We’re so Republican that when we say the Pledge of Allegiance, it’s ‘To the Republicans for which it stands’,” he said.

The state went to Ted Cruz in the March GOP primary. Nonetheless, Crane, himself a Cruz delegate, heartily announced Donald Trump as the “next president of the United States.”
