This site is intended to serve the public, political insiders, educators and news organizations interested in the Iowa presidential caucuses, the election process, and visits made to the state by declared and prospective presidential candidates as they “test” the waters in their bid for election.
This is a nonpartisan resource that contains information about all known presidential candidates and political parties registered with the Federal Elections Commission, regardless of their ideological ideas and opinions on political issues, which may be offensive to some individuals.
