Last week’s Alaska Democratic Party caucuses revealed two things: The state’s appreciation for Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-Vermont, runs deep. Alaska’s Democratic primary is just as deeply broken.
The Alaska Democratic Party praised the fact that more than 10,600 registered Democrats participated in events Saturday. That was a record - more Alaskans participated in the Democratic Party caucuses than ever before. More than 1,000 of them were in Juneau, where the Sheffield Ballroom was filled with standing participants.
