Murray • Utah Democrats on Saturday unveiled an effort to establish a new caucus for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
More than 100 gathered in Murray Park for a pre-LDS General Conference breakfast to hear more about the creation of the LDS Dems caucus within the Utah Democratic Party. The effort includes Saturday's launch of the ldsdems.org website.
The party's central committee is scheduled to vote Oct. 15 on the caucus application. The party has 15 caucuses, including those for women, educators, Latinos, African-Americans, military families and others. The newest caucus is designed in part to make members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints feel more welcome within the Democratic Party, organizers say.
