Republican voters in Colorado and Minnesota Tuesday will engage in the truly American political invention called the caw-cawaasough.
Make that the "caucus," the oft-maligned system in which party members gather to discuss and declare their preferences for a candidate by scribbling a name on a piece of paper for hand-count by party officials.
It’s Caucus Day in Colorado. Republicans from around the state will gather tonight to take a non-binding preference poll on who they favor among the four candidates seeking the GOP Presidential nomination.
Caucusing tonight, Colorado Republicans will conduct a largely symbolic preference-poll on who they’d like to see challenge President Obama this fall. Presumed front-runner Mitt Romney will watch the caucus results at an event tonight in downtown Denver. Newt Gingrich is on his way to Ohio.
