Citzens turn out for local political caucuses

Across the state of Minnesota, political precinct caucuses were held on Tuesday, February 25, including here in Cook County.

Here in Cook County, the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party met at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts and the Republican Party gathered at The Hub (formerly the Cook County Senior Center).

WTIP’s Rhonda Silence caught up the chairs of both local parties – Mary Petz for the GOP and Bryan Hansel with the DFL – to learn more about attendance and activities at the caucuses.

For more information on the Cook County Republican party, call 218-475-2500. For information on the Cook County DFL, visit the Cook County Democratic Farmer Labor Facebook page.
