Caucusmania, Precinct 350-Style

More heavy caucus turn-out reported at Cowan Elementary.

I just got back from caucusing at Cowan Elementary down south off Slaughter, and more of the same. The lines for Obama were clogged while Hillary supporters were in and out of that piece like it was a holdup. There had to be at least 300 folks caucusing while I was there from 7:30 to 8:15 and it was at least two-to-one in favor of Obama. Peace Out.
