Long lines, cold temps annoy Republicans

BRAD HORN/Nevada Appeal The line for the Republican Caucus at the Carson City Senior Citizens Center extended past the entrance to their new building on Saturday.

BRAD HORN/Nevada Appeal The line for the Republican Caucus at the Carson City Senior Citizens Center extended past the entrance to their new building on Saturday.

Longtime Republican and Carson City businesswoman Eileen Starling described the caucus at Capital Christian as "the biggest joke I've seen in I don't know when. It was unorganized, not enough volunteers. They ran out of ballots. There was not enough parking."

"It took me 40-45 minutes in line to get to their registration table."

She blames the party leadership, not the volunteers, and says the people in line were good: "Nobody got belligerent. Nobody got angry."

But Starling says she wants the presidential preference primary back because the caucus cuts out everyone who has to work that day.

Those at the Carson City Senior Citizens Center offered the similar sentiments.
