Dem voters overtake GOP
October 7, 2008
EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado ” Democratic registered voters now narrowly outnumber Republicans, the Eagle County Democratic Party says.
As far back as any party leaders can remember, the Democrats have been outnumbered by Republicans, said Debbie Marquez, a leader of the Democratic Party.
She said numbers from the Eagle County Clerk’s Office show 6,592 registered Democrats and 6,536 Republicans. Unaffiliated voters, at 9,127, are still the majority.
“It’s not a huge advantage, but it is historic,” Marquez said.
The numbers could not be confirmed with the Eagle County Clerk’s Office Tuesday night.
