The Minnesota senator isn't hanging around in Nevada.
Publish date:

Amy Klobuchar will return to her home state on Saturday, before the Democratic caucuses have even ended in Nevada.

The Minnesota senator has announced she will be in attendance at a volunteer appreciation event in Minneapolis on Saturday evening, at 6 p.m., ahead of the Minnesota Primary on Super Tuesday, Mar. 3.

She will start the day in Las Vegas, holding a "Get Out The Caucus" kickoff at her Nevada office, as Nevadans prepare to caucus at around 12:30 p.m. Pacific Time. 

But while an early exit has been a signal of a poor day at the polls for candidates in Iowa and New Hampshire, it's not the case in Nevada, with the Democratic National Committee not committing to releasing the unofficial results of the caucus on Saturday itself.

The Associated Press reports the DNC wants to ensure the results are accurate, following on from the problems seen in Iowa where the final result took several days to be realized.

The Nevada caucuses will not however be using the same technology that led to so many problems in Iowa.

After an appearance in Minneapolis, Klobuchar has a busy Sunday ahead as she heads to Fargo for a grassroots event at NDSU, even though North Dakota's primary isn't until Mar. 10.

Then she'll head to two other Super Tuesday states, appearing in Little Rock, Arkansas, on Sunday afternoon, and then Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, in the evening.
