(Las Vegas) Saturday’s Republican Presidential caucus left many party members with a bad taste in their mouth. Among the problems were dual ballots, lack of adequate number of volunteers and massive confusion on how the caucus process actually worked. KXNT talked with UNLV Political Science Professor David Damore and he said even though there were problems, the process is likely to be here for a while. “The alternative is we hold two primaries. You hold one in January or February for the presidential vote and then for all the other offices in June. I will tell you that the voters in Nevada aren’t going to want to spend the money to do that twice.” Damore went on to say that the Republicans will need to better inform its own party members by 2016 as to how a caucus is supposed to work. The Nevada Legislature would have to approve any changes to the caucus schedule.
