Out Of The Spotlight, Democrats Hold Colorado Caucuses

DENVER (AP) – Colorado wasn’t entirely left out of the action on Super Tuesday.

Colorado Democrats held precinct caucuses Tuesday night, four weeks after their Republican counterparts held precinct caucuses to choose presidential favorites.

Democrats have no contested presidential contest, so their precinct caucuses have attracted little attention. Democrats also have no statewide officers or contested congressional primary battles, so Democrats were deciding more local matters Tuesday.

Like the GOP, Colorado’s Democratic Party also has county caucuses and a statewide convention planned for later this spring.

Most of the nation’s political attention Tuesday went to the 10 states with primaries and caucuses likely to redefine the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
