President Obama faces no opposition on his march to his party’s nomination in tomorrow’s Michigan Democratic Party caucuses, but party Chair Mark Brewer says he’s still hoping for a big turnout at more than 200 caucus locations around the state.
“I think we’re going to have a lot of excitement tomorrow,” he says. “There’s some areas of the state where the Democratic parties are putting on Cinco de Mayo events because tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo. So we’ve encouraged people to be creative and do those kinds of things.”
Brewer says the caucuses are a chance for Democrats to reach out to people who might become supporters, volunteers, and donors. He says candidates will also speak or circulate nominating petitions at some events.
President Obama also appeared on the February 28th Michigan primary ballot. But those results are not counted by the Democratic National Committee. People who voted in the February primary may also participate in the caucuses.
