Caucus Land

It’s an important responsibility being first in the nominating process, and Iowans take it seriously. Candidates take us seriously too – from diners to coffee shops, living rooms to the state fair, they spend a years’ worth of time listening and responding, working to convince caucus-goers that they are the one person best prepared to be President of the United States. After all that work, Iowans caucus – and a few candidates’ trips to the White House are one step closer. Join IPR hosts Clay Masters and Kate Payne to get a view into Iowa – into Caucus Land – as the road to the White House begins!
