Ins and outs of Minnesota caucusing, a party-run affair
A political strategist looking to find out where Hillary Clinton performed best in the Minnesota caucuses when she last ran for president in 2008 will have as many questions as answers.
Like, where are all the votes?
Data from the Secretary of State show zero votes for any candidate in 723 DFL precincts out of 4,122 that reported results in 2008, or 18 percent. Likewise, on the Republican side, large swaths of Minnesota precincts reported no results to the state office.
