Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul debate in Florida.

Two Republican presidential hopefuls will be in Idaho this week to campaign in advance of the Gem State’s March 6th caucus.  Rick Santorum will host two rallies on Tuesday, one in Coeur d’Alene the other in Boise.  Mitt Romney will reportedly host a private fundraiser and a public rally in Boise on Friday.

Idaho’s caucus is just over two weeks away. So we thought it’s time to take a closer look at where the four top GOP candidates stand on basic economic policy.

StateImpact New Hampshire has crafted this easily digestible look at where each of the candidates stands on individual income tax, corporate tax and federal spending.

Keep in mind there are five Republican candidates on Idaho’s ballot: Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Buddy Roemer.

On February 22 Buddy Roemer announced he is no longer running as a Republican, instead he’ll seek the presidency on a third party ticket.
