HUMBOLDT — There are more Democrats in Allen County than you might think, local party organizers said. And now they have a place to meet.

The Allen County Democratic Party opened its campaign headquarters Saturday afternoon at 109 S. Ninth St., Humboldt. And while that’s a fairly routine event before a midterm election, Allen County’s open house and ribbon cutting ceremony was significant in drawing a large, enthusiastic crowd and several candidates from across the state.

More than 40 attended the event, including local, state and federal candidates running in the August primary. Attendees also came from area counties, including Woodson, Wilson and Neosho.
