It’s a mid-term election year and the race is already underway. Tuesday night, Democrats and Republicans in Aspen and around the state held their caucuses. The local parties gathered to assess which candidates could win primary elections later this year. Aspen Public Radio's Elise Thatcher reports on the republican caucus.
More than 70 Pitkin County Republicans gathered at Aspen High School last night. Frieda Wallison is Chair of the local GOP and she says caucus turnout can vary widely depending on how important the elections are in the fall.
