Last person enters community center
Organizers stopped letting people in the community center at 2:15 p.m. The last person in was Joanne Bailey, a part-time nurse and retired teacher. "I just feel very fortunate," she said.
Bailey waited outside for one hour and 45 minutes. "I thought that would be plenty of time, and so did a lot of other people." She said she is going to her caucus tomorrow and hasn’t made up her mind yet, "Which is another reason I’m here." "I wish I could have gone to both of them," Bailey said in reference to the Obama and Clinton events.
Hundreds remain outside the community center, but organizers are directing people to the overflow site, the Girl Scouts office at 1404 N. Ash St.
