Low turnout at Democratic caucus not a surprise - KOAM TV 7

Low turnout at Democratic caucus not a surprise

Updated:

Low turnout at Democratic caucuses in Kansas do not mean waning support for President Obama.

100% of the residents that attended from Crawford, Bourbon and Cherokee counties voted for  President Obama.

58 residents came today compared to about 720 in 2008.

Democratic caucus officials say that's because residents already know who the presidential candidate is for the party.

"We were hopeful we'd get at least 1/3 to a half, we are really hopeful, young people were really enthusiastic last time and with a university in our area a lot of them came and got registered to vote with in our county, I would assume that's the reason," says Julie Menghini, the Caucus Chair for the 13th District.

The caucus will send 13 delegates from the counties to the congressional convention in Lawrence, Kansas on May 5.
