chase martyn (on display): Clinton Campaign Still Unsure on Student Voting

Excerpted from this post at chase martyn (on display)
... One student at Grinnell College, where over 80% of the student body is not from Iowa, received a phone call from Clinton's campaign Sunday. The caller invited the student, a registered Iowa voter who is from Minnesota, to attend Monday's 5:15PM event on campus with the former president. The student, who it should be noted is not a Clinton supporter, sent along this email: " The Clinton campaign called me today and invited me to the Bill [Clinton] event. They also asked who I was planning to caucus for and if I'd ever caucused before. So I decided to call them back and asked if they even wanted me to caucus. I said, "I'm a Grinnell College student but I'm from Minnesota. Does Hillary Clinton want my vote?" And the woman said, "That's a complicated issue, hold on a minute." So she put me on hold for about two minutes, then said, "I'm going to have our youth coordinator get back to you." And she took my name and number. I'm still waiting for them to tell me whether I'm worthy of caucusing for Hillary Clinton."
