LAS VEGAS, Nevada (CNN) – Another contest, another day of record turnout for Democrats.
The Nevada Democratic Party reports that with 84 percent of the precincts reporting, they are seeing unprecedented turnout, with more than 107,000 caucus attendees.
This follows record turnouts for Democrats in the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary.
The numbers are unsurprising, given the fact that most national polls have indicated for quite some time that Democrats are incredibly energized about the 2008 presidential election.
Fewer than 10,000 people attended the 2004 Nevada caucuses, but that contest was much later in the primary season, with very little at stake.
The national Democratic Party decided to move up Nevada's date to the middle of January to make the state, which has a large union and Latino Democratic electorate, more of a primary season player.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was instrumental in moving his state's contest up earlier in the primary process.
He called today's turnout a "tremendous success."
