Among the western states playing a role in the political festivities of Super Tuesday is Idaho.
The Gem state has 32 GOP delegates up for grabs, which, despite not being held in the same category as Iowa or New Hampshire, is a sizable amount. According to the Idaho GOP, the state's caucus process works based on a simple voting majority.
From the Idaho GOP:
The voting will be conducted by secret ballot and takes place in successive rounds. Each round, low vote-getters are eliminated. Voting ends in either of two circumstances: a) one candidate receives a simple majority of at least 50% of the vote; or b) only two final candidates remain on the ballot and the final vote is taken.
The state has been somewhat up for grabs, with Mitt Romney not running his first ad in the state until the Wednesday before the event, according to the Los Angeles Times. Subsequently, Ron Paul began an aggressive ad campaign against the former Massachusetts governor, despite what has largely been identified as a friendship between the two candidates, according to the State Column.

Delegate allocations are tentative and might be adjusted later.
