Area Democrats and Republicans Caucus
(2008-02-06)
(ksut) - HOST LEAD: Voters in each of the Four Corners states weighed in on Super Tuesday with their presidential preferences.
KSUT's Victor Locke takes a look at how that process worked locally and in Colorado, and has results from each of the states.

VICTOR: At Durango City Hall, about 50-people representing four precincts opened the Republican Caucuses with the pledge of allegiance.
They were among hundreds of Democratic and Republican Party faithful caucusing at 60 precinct locations across LaPlata County Tuesday night as did thousands of their counterparts statewide.
The caucuses are a grass roots effort to involve voters in the process.
At the city hall caucus, former councilor Sidny Zink felt at home welcoming attendees and later delivering the presidential preference results for Precinct 2.
ZINK: SO WE HAD MITT ROMNEY, 7, RON PAUL, 4. JOHN MCCAIN 2, AND THAT'S PRECINCT 2.
696 Republicans in all caucused locally last night, 424 supporting Mitt Romney, who won in Colorado.
Across the street at the LaPlata County Courthouse, two dogs noisily stood guard outside while their owners participated in Democrat caucuses in precincts 2 & 3, where participants outnumbered those at the Republican caucuses across the street by 2-3 times.
Britt Bassett was elected chairman by about 50 individuals in the Precinct Three Democratic caucus.
BASSETT: OKAY, ALL THOSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO GO FOR BARACK OBAMA, GO AHEAD AND RAISE YOUR LITTLE VOTING SHEETS, I'M GOING TO TAKE A ROUGH COUNT, THAT'S ALL.
Countywide, an estimated 1500 Democrats caucused, voicing strong support for Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton, by an almost 5-1 margin.
Obama carried handily in Archuleta, Montezuma, Dolores, San Juan and San Miguel counties as well as statewide with a 2-1 finish over Clinton.
Delegates were also selected at the caucuses, the first step in ultimately naming 43 Republican and 55 Democratic non-binding delegates
to the national conventions.
With the presidential preference vote and delegate selection business finished, caucuses in both locations grew into discussions on local issues.
PARTICIPANT: ANYBODY CAN BRING UP A RESOLUTION AND THE DELEGATES WILL TAKE THAT RESOLUTION TO THE ASSEMBLY AND GIVE IT TO THE PEOPLE RUNNING THE ASSEMBLY AND WE'LL DISCUSS THAT RESOLUTION.
The meetings also become an opportunity to try and recruit new soldiers for each party's central committee.
Utah and Arizona held presidential primaries.
In Utah, Mitt Romney, a Mormon like more than 60-percent of the state's residents, won the Republican Primary while Barack Obama handily claimed victory in the Democratic race.
In Arizona, favorite son Senator John McCain declared himself the gop frontrunner after winning over Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee.
Hillary Clinton captured the Grand Canyon State over Barack Obama.
Turnout in many areas, especially Colorado and New Mexico, was described by some as "off the chart."
From KSUT, Four Corners Public Radio, I'm Victor Locke.

TAG: In New Mexico, the votes are still being counted this morning in the Democratic Primary, with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in a virtual dead heat.
