Republicans and Democrats gather for the Iowa Caucuses


The Mahaska County Democratic Party gathered at the courthouse and then divided themselves by township and Oskaloosa city wards for the caucus.

Party officials read a letter from Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Scott Brennon.

“Tonight is the first step toward a strong grassroots effort. Elections are not a spectator sport,” he wrote.

The Democrats elected county convention delegates and sent their selections to a central computer for transmission to party officials.

The Mahaska County Democrats have a full slate of events ahead of them too.

The Committee on Committees and the Platform Committee will meet on Jan. 28 at 6:30 p.m. at Smokey Row. The Mahaska County Democratic Convention will be held on March 8 at the Oskaloosa Senior High School, south door.
