There was a huge turnout at our caucus location. Tom & I could barely walk through the halls at St. Louis Park High School because it was so packed. It was a wonderful thing.
There was overwhelming support for Al Franken there. He will have no trouble winning in my district, considering he grew up here.
In fact, Al was there! I talked to him in the foyer when we first walked in, and later he came in to talk with our caucus room (which was standing room only.)
As far as the Presidential vote count, I believe it was something like Hillary: 61, Obama: 111. I was actually surprised Hillary got that many as I did not see anyone wearing a Hillary button. However, I did see Al Franken and Barack Obama buttons & stickers as far as the eyes could see.
I signed up to be the Associate Chair and a delegate for Senate District 44. Tom will also be a delegate.
As I watch the coverage on MSNBC, it's only a matter of time before Minnesota is called for Obama. Hey! There it is!
