Not that stupid Corporate America term (synonym of a meeting), but the real deal and it was, well, 90% waiting for the group to get organized, 5% actually getting into groups, and 5% waiting to see if I was selected to be a delegate.
And, I was selected to be a delegate for our precinct. So, on March 29th I’ll get to campaign for my guy at the county convention. The county convention then elects delegates to go to state, then the state elects delegates to go to the national convention in Denver.
I’d write more but there isn’t much to discuss.
In total, I showed up at 7:00pm but we didn’t really do much until around 8pm because the caucuses started after the primary voting was done. First our precinct sat with 3 other precincts in a large room. Then, they moved my group to the library where we sat for another 40 minutes.
After numerous problems with how we filled out the paper that said we were there they finally had us get into our groups for which candidate we supported. Our group was bigger than their group.
Their group looked unhappy and like a bunch of mid-forties to sixties hacks (which exit polls later showed to be true). Then, once they figured out which percentage of the delegates when to candidate A and candidate B they asked who wanted to be a delegate.
We all signed our names. Twenty-two names for 11 spots. Thankfully, someone had the enlightened idea to just draw names out of a hat rather than us give speeches (22 * 3 minutes – another hour). My name was drawn.
I shall keep you posted.
