Nebraska Democrats to Hold Second Caucus

The April 14 caucus will be the second one in Nebraska's history. Party Chairman Vic Covalt says the first caucus in 2008 helped unify the party and attracted thousands of people interested in politics.

The first caucus helped bring Democratic presidential candidates, including President Barack Obama, to the state in 2008. Obama won one of Nebraska's electoral votes, making him the first presidential candidate to split Nebraska's electoral votes.

Those who attend the caucuses in Nebraska's 93 counties will have a chance to represent their precinct at the party's county convention. That might lead to a chance to represent the state as a delegate to the national Democratic convention in Charlotte, N.C., in September.
