“Four years ago Iowans launched President Obama on the path to the White House by standing by him at the Iowa Democratic caucuses. On January 3rd, 2012, Iowans will start the path to his reelection and Democratic victories at all levels. We could not be more excited to welcome his participation in our caucuses.

No matter what happens on January 3rd, one thing is for sure, on January 4th we will have the strongest grassroots foundation going forward.”
