If crowds are any indication of how the Democratic candidates are faring in Elko — all three are in town today — John Edwards was able to pack a Basque restaurant with between 50 and 75 (Update: now 100) people. Later, Hillary Clinton filled a gymnasium with 500 (Update: now 600) supporters — standing room only — with more people trying to file in 15 minutes before her scheduled appearance. Barack Obama’s rally is at 2:30.
