UPDATE: Call to Caucus is CANCELED

**UPDATE** Per DPVA Party Rules, the caucus to elect delegates to the 1st Congressional District Democratic Convention has been canceled. FDC received only six applications for delegates, and because that is fewer than the eight slots we have been assigned, there is no need to hold the caucus. The Chair hereby declares all applicants duly appointed delegates to the Convention on June 7. The delegates are as follows:

Harold Bannister
Christi Carver
Lisa Durham
Jason Graham
Sue Sargeant
Ron Wasem
