are University of Iowa journalism students covering the Iowa caucuses
for news outlets across Iowa and elsewhere in the nation as part
of a course named "Presidential Politics." We are interviewing
key caucus players including candidates, campaign officials, and
national and local reporters. We attend political rallies, travel
with candidates, and talk to students and other voters who may show
up for the contests in nearly 2,000 precincts on Jan. 19, 2004.
We report, take photographs and write stories. The best of our work
goes on this Web site.
