I went to my caucus tonight and was excited by the turnout.
When Dr. Ray Ward asked how many of the attendees were attending their first caucus I was amazed by how many hands were raised.
My guess, 75% of those attending were newcomers.
Later in the night my friend Shane Giddings called.
"I'm not a delegate!" he proclaimed happily.
When I asked him why he seemed happy that he wasn't elected he explained that for years he had been one of only two people to show up.
But not this year.
Utah Democrats are experiencing a rebirth, and for this I am grateful.
It truly is a good day to be a Utah Democrat.
