Democratic Presidential Caucus is Saturday

By The Mercury

Riley County Democrats will caucus at Eisenhower Middle School Saturday afternoon in the first step toward renominating President Barack Obama.

Registration begins at 1 p.m.; the caucus meeting begins at 2.

The session is one of 50 being held statewide.

“We are excited about this year’s caucus and the opportunity it provides to bring Democrats together and jump start the 2012 elections,” said Joan Wagnon, chair of the Kansas Democratic Party.  She said the caucus “will allow Kansas Democrats to stand up and express their belief in our president and their belief in our shared values of good schools, good jobs, and a fair system.”

The caucus is open to all Kansas residents, but all caucus goers must apply to register as a Democrat before they may participate.
