Overall Turnout High for Nev. Caucuses

By Garance Franke-Ruta
While turnout at the nine at-large caucus locations on the fabled Las Vegas Strip may have been surprisingly low, given the amount of public attention focused on those sites, overall turnout for the Nevada caucuses surpassed even the best expectations of Democratic Party officials, who had earlier been predicting tens of thousands would show up for the Saturday political event.

With 88 percent of the precincts reporting, the Nevada Democratic Party said in a statement that it's "seeing record turnout with more than 114,000 caucus attendees."

Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (Nev.) was one of the only people to predict turnout around 100,000. Others had projected a more modest 45,000 tally.
