Nevada Turnout Shows Lack Of Enthusiasm For Republican Field
The Nevada turnout is much less than expected.
Turnout was unlikely to match 2008, when 44,000 Republicans participated in Nevada’s caucuses. Republicans initially predicted that 70,000 Republicans would caucus.
Participation was lackluster.
“It was less than what we had planned for,” Clark County caucus Director Michael Chamberlain said on KNPR.
Republican turnout in Washoe County, Nevada’s second largest, was 8 percent, well below the 20 percent some had predicted.
“We expected more. Obviously we hoped for more,” David Buell, chairman of the Washoe County Republican Party, said.
