6:01 am
going to make an appearance. people are getting ready day to see him. they've been coming in, asking where they need to go so they can be the first in line to see him. there's a 4,000 person capacity, and pushes are expecting that many people to be here today. thats a how people were here the last time trump came to northern nevada. for his third straight win in nevada, and recent polling data tells us he has a double-digit lead over his competitors, ted cruz, marco rubio. ted cruz also making his rounds in northern nevada. in fernly, minnen as well as carson city. ben carson going to be in carson city later today. talking a little bit about the cause happening tonight, there are 20 different predrink sites. go to my4news.com. we'll tell you exactly the location you need to be at tonight between 0 and 6:00 p.m. if you do want to participate in the caucus.

6:03 am
out from democrats. and estimateed 80,000 democrats showed up statewide. that's down from the all-time high in 2008. back then, some 120,000 registered democrats turned out to caucus. another twist is the latino vote. some experts say that segment of the population showed up in far fewer numbers than expected >> i think, for 2016, it may suggest that -- we may not see a high level of participation, even on november 8th. >> the numbers show sandered did well in the rural areas. he had a strong showing in northern nevada with about 70% of registered democrats statewide in clark county that helped give the win to hillary clinton. for those of you going out to caucus, sounds like the weatherer is going to be on our side. not too warm today, but, man, things are really warming up as we head deeper into the workweek.
