Delegates to the CD caucuses this Sunday were voted on from their county caucus last month. Over 1600 activists participated in caucuses held in every county of the state.

In February we had incredible turnout in our Democratic primary, and last month, over 1600 activists took part in the county caucuses,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairman Joe Wineke said. “Wisconsin Democrats are more engaged than ever as they run for the opportunity to represent Wisconsin and our Democratic candidates at the National Convention.”

 Another 28 pledged delegate positions will be selected by the State Party’s Administrative Committee at their meeting at the state convention on June 13.
