Sanders Wins a Davenport Precinct

In one democratic caucus Monday night, Bernie Sanders was an easy winner. At Central High School in Davenport, 96 people supported him while 42 chose Hillary Clinton.  

Leading the charge for Sanders was Nick Tsacudakis.
Just as adamant for Clinton were Cheryl Draeger and Connie Larson.


John Lothrop led the Clinton supporters, saying she's the one who could work with a republican congress. 


With Sanders supporters out-numbering the Clinton group, more than two to one, he ended up with 3 delegates to the county convention, while Clinton will get one.
