The Washington Examiner reports that there is a huge turnout for the Washington, D.C. Caucus.

Voters waited in long lines to cast their presidential ballots.  At mid-afternoon, lines extended for two blocks outside of the Caucus site with voters waiting for hours:

One voter, who appeared to be only halfway though the line, said she had already been in line for two hours.

As stated earlier, Nineteen delegates are up for grabs in the Washington, D.C. caucus. Sixteen regular delegates will be allocated proportionally to any candidate getting more than 15 percent. There are three additional Republican National Committee delegates who will be awarded as a bonus to whoever gets the plurality of votes. And if someone gets the majority of votes, they get to take all 19 delegates.

According to the Examiner, Gov. John Kasich, Donald Trump, and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., all appeared well represented among voters. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, had a presence, but seemed to have the fewest staffers and volunteers of the four campaigns.

Results are expected around 9:00 p.m.
