Canyon County Caucus Pix

It was a raucous caucus in Canyon County tonight. Many of the Obama supporters who braved the long lines in frigid weather to hear him speak at Taco Bell Arena on Saturday found themselves repeating the experience at the Nampa Civic Center. On both occasions, the wait was worth it. Inside the crowd was in a festive mood and the results were never in doubt. The first count resulted in Obama with 72%, Clinton 20%, Uncommitted 7% and Edwards 1%.

After it was determined that the Uncommitted and Edwards supporters didn’t have the necessary votes to receive a single delegate, the second vote resulted in 23 delegates for Obama and 6 for Clinton. With just over 79% of the count, Obama’s Canyon County vote was close to the overall Idaho results of 81%.

All in all, a pretty amazing night for Idaho Democrats. Here are some pictures from Nampa Civic Center.
