Wondering why there's so many GOP rallys in town?

TRI-CITIES, Wash. - We didn't have any big name visitors before the 2008 election.

The Chairman for Benton County's Republican Party explains - it's because our state's caucus is now ahead of Super Tuesday.

Patrick McBurney says, "Anybody who understands how this state works will know that the largest net supplier of Republican votes in any statewide election will come from Benton County and so as a result of that when you are looking for Republican votes you go to where the republican votes are, they're right here."

Mitt Romney is scheduled to visit the Seattle area on March first. Local organizers don't know if he will head this way yet.
