MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Republican officials say they will hold the state party's presidential caucus vote on Super Tuesday in March 2012, when a number of other states across the country are scheduled to have primary and caucus votes.

The Idaho GOP's state central committee approved the change during its meeting in Moscow Saturday, saying the previously scheduled May primary would come too late for the state to have any influence on the Republican presidential nomination process.

The caucus will be scheduled for the earliest Tuesday allowed by the Republican National Committee. Only four states will hold earlier nomination contests: Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.

Ron Nate of Rexburg, who chaired the rules subcommittee that submitted the caucus proposal, says Idaho's 32 delegates are more than Iowa, New Hampshire or Nevada.
