I received this in the e-mail:
The first in the nation caucus was held in Santa Cruz on Saturday, January 10. It was a lot of fun with donkeys, bagpipes, banners, cheers… Congressman Sam Farr spoke at the event and noted that when Democrats form a firing squad, they form it in a circle.
Three candidates generated the most energy – Dean, Kucinich and, surprising, Clark. BUT… Dean won the vote of over 400 participants at 49%. Kucinich was 2nd with about 25% and Clark not far behind with about 21%. The remainder of the field garnered the remaining 5% of the vote.
Interesting that Kucinich didn’t win! If you know Santa Cruz (Rasta Cruz to locals), you’re as surprised as I am.
