Thanks to a recent win, Woodbury Central High will host part of the tournament. But the county's Democratic Party booked that gym months ago. School officials moved the caucus to a middle school.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

The Woodbury County Democratic Party booked Woodbury Central High months ago. But that is also the site of the Wildcat game, where the basketball teams have to play. So school officials are moving the caucus to a nearby middle school. Parents of Wildcats, don't forget to caucus.
