Nebraska Democrats Plan For Their Second Caucuses

Nebraska Democrats hope this spring's presidential caucus will help energize the party and help recruit new volunteers.

The April 14 caucus will be the second one in Nebraska's history. Party Chairman Vic Covalt says the first caucus in 2008 helped unify the party and attracted thousands of people interested in politics.

Covalt says that the first caucus helped Nebraska catch President Barack Obama's attention in 2008. Obama campaigned in the state and won one of Nebraska's electoral votes.

Nebraska Democrats say the caucus will help strengthen their
network. So it's worth holding a caucus again even though there's
little question about who will be the Democratic nominee for
president this year.

Covalt says the caucuses should help the party build an army of volunteers.
