JOHNSTON, IOWA — We’re back in the press filing center for the Democratic debate here later today. Getting all set up to meet Rose and Pearl, the two beautiful horses that got us to the debate site here yesterday by a 19th century-like buggy. Why? Here’s the answer.

In the meantime check out this cool look at the unusually high voter participation in the state to our north – Minnesota – produced by friend of Why Tuesday? MTV News.
