In 2008 Salazar headed to Nevada to help with the launch the then-new Nevada Caucus. Most won’t remember, but up until ’08, Nevada was a primary state; Roger worked that very first Caucus and learned firsthand exactly how much can go wrong. He sat down with Capitol Weekly’s John Howard and Tim Foster to chat about how caucuses work, what they look like from the organizational side and what to expect when The Silver State caucuses in just over one week.
