The crowd of about two dozen people that turned out for the Democratic Party caucus at Leota Junior High on Sunday afternoon was friendly, enthusiastic, and very small compared with the hundreds that showed up in 2008. Despite the low numbers, the support for President Obama was still high, with one person shouting out, “Go Barack,” when it was announced all present were voting for him.
Woodinville Patch was there live blogging the event () and talking with participants. There were 18 precincts at the Leota location, at least half had no one representing them and many had only one or two people.
Once the votes had all been cast for the president the talk among caucus goers was of a proposed zipline in Gold Creek Park ().
Chairs were stacked and tables tucked away by 2:15 p.m. and everyone headed out to enjoy the rest of a sunny day.
