Jay Leno once said that the word caucus is an Indian word meaning, “the one day every four years when America pays attention to Iowa.” And now that we’re less than a week away from the 2012 Iowa caucuses there is more media attention than normal here in the state.
It’s nowhere near the attention the state got four years ago when both Democrats and Republicans had candidates crisscrossing the states for well over a year, and I got to see 12 candidates on both sides speak including the future President of the United States Barack Obama.
But just in the last two days both GOP candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich made a stop at The Chocolate Season in Algona, Iowa. Earlier this year I was field producer on behalf of Magnet Media for a Google video featuring The Chocolate Season.
It is a small world after all.
