Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark was the winner
of the Upper Dublin caucus in Southeast
Pennsylvania on January 12 receiving 60% of the vote followed by
Howard Dean who came in second place with 31%.
The Caucus which took place at the Fort Washington Expo Center,
allowed Upper Dublin Democrats a chance to make their choice for
one of the nine Democratic presidential candidates. During the
caucus, representatives from the Clark for President and the Dean
for America campaigns spoke about the strengths of each candidate
and answered questions from residents. Over 100 residents
participated in the caucus and spent the evening debating and
discussing the merits of each candidate.
"This was a very informative evening with groups of
residents debating the positions, strengths and weaknesses of the
nine Presidential Candidates. We may support different candidates
but are united in our desire to defeat President Bush and to free
our country from the bankrupt policies of those currently in
power," stated Robert Pesavento, Upper Dublin Township Board
of Commissioners President.
"The people who participated are a diverse group reflecting
the demographics of Southeastern Pennsylvania. We are a microcosm
of America and are pleased to have demonstrated our commitment to
the principals upon which this country was founded,"
reported Upper Dublin Democratic Chair Jeffrey Albert.
