Nevada Caucus Experience

By TLS | January 20, 2008

Yesterday I had the chance to go to the Nevada Caucuses. It was the first time I’d ever attended a caucus. It was an interesting experience and I’m glad I went. I was one of only three attendees from my precinct. We were combined in a room with another precinct. That group had 34 attendees.

I thought being at the caucus was a great experience and I felt proud to do my civic duty! I had previously read the article on Ron Paul’s website about the Republican caucus in chaos, so I was expecting to see this first-hand. There were some hiccups along the way, but overall it went pretty smoothly. This is basically how it went down:

Results of the contest were as follows (37 total votes cast):

Romney: 25
McCain: 8
Thompson: 2
Paul: 1
Huckabee: 1

I later learned that Mitt Romney won the caucus by a 40% margin. Ron Paul came in second. I was glad with the outcome as I think Romney is the best man for the job. But regardless of the outcome it was a great experience. I’m looking forward to attending the Clark County Republican Party Convention on February 22-23.

    I look forward to reading how the county convention goes. I was a little intimidated by the process to volunteer to be a delegate this time around. If the caucus systems stays for the next election, I will volunteer to be a delegate.

    I was a little unsure about being a delegate at first, but I decided to go for it, anyway! I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks for the note.
