Clark County, NV - County Extending GOP Caucus Vote For Sabbath Observers
Clark County, NV - Nevada Republican Party leaders say results of next weekâ€™s presidential caucus will be released through Twitter and Google.
In a conference call Friday, state party leaders also said results from all but Nevadaâ€™s largest county will be released starting at 5 p.m. PST.
Clark County results in Las Vegas will come sometime after 7 p.m., when a special evening caucus begins there for Jewish voters marking the Sabbath. The move will delay results from the stateâ€™s fifth-in-the-nation presidential nominating contest by several hours.
