Idaho Republican Party Backs Trump to Beat Hillary
BOISE, Idaho (KLIX)- Businessman Donald Trump is now the presumptive nominee for the Republican nomination for president after fellow candidates bowed out this week.
The development now raises questions as to who will back the New York mogul. Count the leaders of Idaho's Republican Party as one of them. The Idaho Republican Party Chairman Steve Yates sent out this statement regarding Trump's win within the party.
"Donald Trump is, for all intents and purposes, the presumptive Republican Nominee. The Idaho Republican Party would like to congratulate Mr. Trump on this pivotal moment, and welcome him as our presumptive nominee. We would also like to thank all the other campaigns for a well fought race, especially Senator Cruz who came to Idaho, campaigned vigorously, and with record voter turnout in our presidential primary, won Idaho. We fully support Mr. Trump as our nominee and now is the time for Republicans to unite and focus on defeating Hillary Clinton. America cannot survive another four years like the last eight, and a strong, unified party behind our nominee is critical to ensuring that Republicans win the White House and all other down ticket races. #NeverHillary"
