Da Mare is at it again: he's now saying it's time for Illinois -- the whole Midwest, actually -- to abandon the primary and move to a caucus system like Iowa. "If the national Democratic Party is going back to a caucus [system], let's all go with caucuses. Let every state do their own caucus and let the state party pick up the cost and not the taxpayers. . . . You're not wasting taxpayers' money. Do all caucuses. Let the party run it. . . . I wish they could do that. It would be a much easier system and you'd save an enormous amount of money. An enormous amount of money is wasted."
