Some Crossover Voters at Nev. Democratic Caucuses

Of the 146 people at one Democratic precinct caucus in Sparks, 32 of them registered at the door as Democrats, including about a dozen who previously were registered Republicans.

But all the cross-overs weren't necessarily new Democratic converts.

John Holmes says he's a longtime Republican who backs Romney.

But he became a Democrat for the day to cast a vote for Barack
Obama as a protest against Hillary Clinton.

He says his brother-in-law is doing the same thing in Reno.

The 55-year-old computer engineer says the plans to switch his party affiliation back to the GOP next week.
