Arizona's Democratic presidential preference caucuses are happening Saturday, but voters will have only one candidate to give their nod toward: President Barack Obama.

Obama was the only Democratic candidate seeking election — or re-election — to the country's highest office to file the appropriate paperwork for consideration in this weekend's count.

"The excitement among Arizona Democrats about re-electing President Obama is overwhelming," said Luis Heredia, executive director of the Arizona Democratic Party, in a press release.
