Democrats talk about the Overcrowding of the Republican Caucus
By Melanie Tubbs
BENTON COUNTY, Wash. -- Action News continues to follow the controversy surrounding yesterday's Republican caucuses, where a thousand people were turned away to vote. Volunteers told us they underestimated the number of people coming to vote and didn't have enough workers to process everyone. Mitt Romney took the title for GOP candidate in our area, but many voiced a re-count after being denied a vote. Today we talked to the Democrats in our area to see how they reacted. Local Chair of the Benton County Democrats, Regina Speer told KEPR, "I have empathy because we were overcrowded 4 years ago. I love the fact that people are energized and want to turn out." The democratic caucus is Sunday April 15th at Hanford High School.
