Kansas GOP Sets Caucus Locations

On February 9th Rupublicans from across the state will gather together to declare who they think should be the next President of the United States.

For these Kansans, it will be the first caucuses in two decades, and the first time they are able to get their say in the nominating process since Bob Dole made his bid for the White House.

"We have seen an unprecedented amount of support from our counties across the state," said Kansas Republican Party Chairman Kris Kobach. " They are excited about the opportunity to participate in the Republican nomination process."

The caucus comes four days after the so-called "Mega Tuesday," in which 21 states, including California and New York, will pick their delegates. Eight other states will also pick their delagates before the Sunflower state weighs in. Louisiana and Washington will get their say on the same day.

The caucuses will take place in 64 locations in 61 counties across the state, meaning that 78% of Kansans will be able to meet within their own county.

"This caucus is about bringing presidential politics to a local level: American public libraries, courthouses, and other community locations all across Kansas will be participating in this fantastic endeavor," Kobach added.
