Minnesota's process of endorsing and nominating political candidates begins at 7 p.m. tonight at precinct caucuses around the state.
The caucuses continue a grassroots tradition for the state's political parties. Each party holds its own meetings, and any citizen sharing the views of that party may step forward and offer his or her views.
Those interested in attending caucuses may contact local county auditors, call state party offices or check political party Web sites to learn more about what precinct they live in and to find caucus locations.
