“Pent-up frustrations of a red state, exploded Idaho Caucuses to historic numbers last Tuesday night, with 78 % for Bernie Sanders,” Gertonson wrote. 
 
“I’m proud to be an Idaho Democrat representing the people’s choice. I’ll cast our Super Delegate vote for Bernie Sanders!”
 
Sanders scored a huge win in Idaho's caucuses on Tuesday, receiving 78 percent of the vote.
 
 
Sanders has a particular disadvantage in superdelegates, who can choose who to support without regard for election results.
 
Clinton has the support of 467 superdelegates, to 26 for Sanders.
