To The Daily Sun,
For anybody who didn't know or didn't care, Ted Cruz won the (603 Alliance) caucus, followed by Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina.
Now that it is over the 603 Alliance thinks all those attending are going to unite and support Cruz.
As soon as I heard about the caucus and looked them up on Facebook, and the people that organized the event I knew this was a far right movement. And supporting Cruz, the winning candidate, proves it.
To show you how important this was to the candidates, only Cruz showed up. Some others did have stand-ins speak.
On the final vote Cruz took 72.3 percent of the vote. Being the main objective of the caucus was to unite for a candidate, it will be real interesting to see how many people voted on the last ballot. If all the people who voted on the first ballot weren't there at the end, I guess that shows not all were planning to vote for the choice of the Alliance as they claimed.
One of the organizers of the caucus, Fran Wendelboe said one of the reason that other candidates didn't show up was they didn't like to engage unless they think they can win. Like I read on Facebook right after the caucus, many people felt they had a good idea Cruz was going to win. Probably the reason more people didn't attend.
Being this is New Hampshire, I don't think 700 people are going to tell us how to vote.
Good luck people. You're going to need it.
