Iowa Democratic caucus Dubuque only 217 in the city of 53k showed up to caucus

The chair of Iowa’s Dubuque County Democrats said he was “blown away” by the low turnout at the county’s caucus Monday night. “We were blown away by the fact that we did not have the turnout that we expected,” said Steve Drahozal, chair of the Dubuque County Democrats, on the local NBC affiliate KWQC. “We had expected higher numbers.” Brian Tabick a local KWQC correspondent reported that just 217 people caucused at a local high school in Dubuque, an Iowa city with a population of approximately 57,000. Attendants, the correspondent said, “were expecting a much higher turnout” than they got. “If we wanted to, we could all sit in this corner,” said one bearded caucus-goer in a “Bernie 2020” shirt.
