Raucous Missouri Caucus Shut Down

"Missouri Republicans jammed caucus sites across the state on Saturday morning, with at least one site in St. Charles County shut down, injecting some uncertainty into the process," the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"A caucus in the gymnasium at Francis Howell North High School in St. Peters was shut down after about a half hour of boisterous disputes, some of it over a caucus rule barring videotaping and other recording. Supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul repeatedly yelled objections to decisions made by caucus organizers."

New York Times: "Turnout was low when Rick Santorum took this county (and the state) in a traditional primary election on Feb. 7. It was one of three states he won that day, giving his campaign a significant lift. But because of the unusual party and state circumstances, the vote awarded no delegates, many of whom would be chosen at caucuses on Saturday."
