We Thank You for Making Our Precinct Caucuses a Success! Here’s What’s Next!

Thanks to the 3,345 citizens that participated in our March 1 precinct caucuses at Eagan Senior High School! From everything we saw first hand and have heard since, our caucuses held robust and stimulating conversations about the future we would like to see in our community, state and nation. They elected local precinct leaders and delegates to the Senate District convention, and adopted resolutions. Oh, and by the way, they gave Bernie 56.8% and Hillary 42.5% of the votes cast in the Presidential preference ballot.
