Minnesota Republican caucuses: How to follow them

Minnesota, like Colorado is hosting its Republican presidential caucus on Tuesday.

Minnesota gets 40 delegates to the Republican National Convention, but the caucuses are non-binding, so they will not be awarded Tuesday night. But there are still some interesting things to watch in the contest there, Rachel Weiner writes. Here are the details on how to follow the Minnesota caucuses.

What is the schedule? 

The Minnesota caucuses start at 8 p.m. ET, according to the AP, with results expected by 8:45 p.m. 

There will be no exit or entrance polls.
