Quick quiz! Which weekend contest is more scripted to pick a certain winner? Saturday's Democratic caucus to determine which presidential candidate will get the state's delegates or the match between The Rock and John Cena Sunday at Wrestlemania 28?
I'm still a Republican, so I'm not invited, but if you're up for a pep rally, the info is below the cut. Since the event isn't on pay-per-view (score one for Wrestlemania!), someone let me know how it turns out:
Arizona Democratic Presidential Caucuses This Saturday
PHOENIX, AZ—This upcoming Saturday, March 31, Democrats from across Arizona will be coming together for the 2012 Arizona Democratic District Caucuses. At the caucuses, Democrats will have the opportunity to do two things: first, the Arizona Presidential Preference Caucuses will take place, where Democratic voters will have the opportunity to come out and vote for the 2012 Democratic nominee for President of the United States. Immediately afterward, the elected and appointed precinct committeepersons at each caucus will elect District-level delegates, selecting those individuals who will serve as delegates from Arizona's eight congressional districts at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
President Barack Obama of Illinois, who is seeking re-election, is the only candidate who filed the appropriate paperwork for the office of President of the United States in the 2012 Arizona Presidential Preference Caucus.
"The excitement among Arizona Democrats about re-electing President Obama is overwhelming," said Luis Heredia, Executive Director of the Arizona Democratic Party. "From Yuma to Window Rock, I hear from Democrats every day who are eager to hit the ground running and give their all to elect President Obama and his Democratic team up and down the ballot in 2012. The District Caucuses provide a great opportunity for Democrats to come out and get involved in the campaign to re-elect our President and stand by him the way he has stood by us," Heredia added.
All media interested in attending a caucus are encouraged to contact Joaquin Rios of the Arizona Democratic Party at (480) 229-1895 or email@example.com.
