Tuesday's caucus turnout dips

About 50,000 Republicans showed up for the grassroots presidential election event in Minnesota. Compare that with the 130,000 tally for the August 2010 primary election. The number of Minnesota caucus voters fell short of Colorado's 65,000 count, but beat's sparsely populated Nevada's 30,000 number from Saturday.
