Nebraska Democrats Hold Convention in Lincoln


Nebraska Democrats met in Lincoln on Saturday for their 2014 party convention.

County delegates spent time meeting in caucus groups and learning about things like mobilizing volunteers. They also elected their own officers and representatives to conduct business within the party.

Nebraska Democrats seeking office were invited to share their messages and goals, something the party’s executive director says many were looking forward to.

"We really have a good contrast between the candidates that are running on the Republican ticket and this is a way to communicate our message across the state, across the different counties all over the state,” says Dan Marvin.

Marvin says about 350 people came for the weekend convention. He says that’s a good turnout since it’s a non-presidential election year, so they won’t be choosing people to go to the national convention.
