Minnesota's Major Caucuse Turnout
A record number of people turned out to participate in caucuses all over Minnesota Tuesday night.
24 states, including Minnesota, held primaries and caucuses on Tuesday. This has commonly been referred to as "Super Tuesday" because of the amount of presidential delegates that are up for grabs.
The 2004 presidential caucus had 56,000 people attend democratic caucuses and around 40,000 people attended the republican caucus. The democratic caucus this year had over 220,000 people participate and over 60,000 participated for the republicans.
The presidential race became much clearer on the republican side after Tuesday, while the democratic race is still tightly contested.
As of Wednesday morning, the estimated delegates for each nominee are: Clinton 811, Obama 720 for the democrats and, McCain 616, Romney 269, and Huckabee 170 for the republicans.
