Maine Democrats Ready For Presidential Caucuses

A day after Republican caucuses, Maine Democrats are ready to make their presidential preference known.

Democrats are gathering Sunday afternoon at 400 locations across the state to choose between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who're vying to represent the party in the general election.

Sanders rallied his supporters this past week in Portland, telling them he'll win if there's a large turnout.

Unlike Saturday's GOP caucuses, the results are not binding.

The votes will be used to select a slate of delegates to the state convention, where national delegates will be elected. Maine will send 25 delegates and 30 super delegates to the national convention in Philadelphia.
