WASHINGTON (AP) – The Nevada Republican party is reporting that attendance at its Tuesday night caucus set a new record.
The party says more than 75,000 voters attended the caucus. That’s more than twice the 33,000 who caucused in 2012.
Nevada’s Republican caucuses have been plagued by low attendance and other problems since they began in 2008. Democrats have seen stronger turnout numbers. They reported more than 84,000 caucus goers in their caucuses on Saturday.
As expected, the relatively high turnout Tuesday powered Donald Trump to a commanding victory.
