BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio on Wednesday selected Idaho State Controller Brandon Woolf to serve as state chairman for the campaign.

Woolf says the Florida senator has a conservative vision that is needed in America and admires the Republican’s leadership.

Rubio is among more than a dozen Republicans seeking the party’s nomination. The candidate made a campaign stop in Idaho earlier this year, and has been named a favorite of Idaho’s mega-donor Frank VanderSloot.

Idaho recently moved up its presidential primary election to March 8, with the hopes of making its 32 GOP delegates more relevant in the upcoming election.
