Caucus vs Primary War of Words

This was posted on Wikipedia article "Colorado Caucus" to explain variation from Iowa Caucuses:

In Colorado the accepted usage has been Colorado Caucus rather than Colorado caucuses. In 2000 a committee was formed to fight Amendment 29. It was called Save the Caucus, not Save the caucuses. Making the term descriptive of the event rather than a title is a way to disparage the process. Look at the Iowas caucuses article, link in the first paragraph to 2008 front page of Iowa paper that uses Iowa Caucus. Search newspapers, it's clear this is an effort to demean states that have been loyal to this grassroots system. Watch for article soon on Colorado Caucus News <nowiki>http://Facebook.com/Colorado.Caucus.News
