Registered Democrats at a Davenport precinct gave Bernie Sanders a 3-2 victory last night. At the Precinct D-42 caucus, held at Williams Intermediate School, 83 supporters lined up for Sanders while 63 lined up for Hillary Clinton.

 But the caucus didn't start that way. A bit of haggling came first. 

For many, such as 18-year-old Duane Sleet, it was their first caucus.   

On the other hand, veteran caucus-goer Alicia Cheek was "firmly" undecided.

Even a busload of high school students from as far away as Northwest Indiana made the trip to observe a caucus.
