Caucus results coming in; WT? on MTV.com *

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008


DES MONIES, IA — Still confused what the heck is going on here in Iowa? Click over to MTV.com where they’re featuring our video explaining what the Iowa caucus is all about. Once you’re there, look for the button above.

The results are streaming in to the press filing center into downtown Des Moines. CNN and Fox News both just called the Republican caucuses for Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, one of the thirteen candidates to respond to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge. Maybe Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson should have responded? No final word yet on the Democrats. Stay tuned for updates.

* 8:29PM CST UPDATE: The AP and CNN are projecting Illinois Senator Barack Obama, another responder to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge, to be the Democratic winner of the Iowa caucuses. That means both winners have laid out their plans for election reform to us at Why Tuesday? — and we hope they’ll continue to spend time talking about the state of our voting system.
