“The caucus process is democracy in action: volunteers running neighborhood meetings where voters come together to debate and express support for who they want to be our next president. The state party prepared extensively for Caucus Day, and we’re so proud of the many volunteers across Nevada who gave their time and energy over the last few months to run a fair, transparent and engaging caucus on Saturday. We're also proud of the nearly 84,000 Nevadans who participated in our First in the West presidential caucus, more than half of them for the first time ever.”
