2014 Iowa Caucuses and Renewable Fuel Standard
Iowans gathered for caucuses Tuesday night, not to determine who will win nominations for President, but to determine who will control the parties. Host Ben Kieffer talks with University of Iowa Associate Professor of Political Science Tim Hagle, and Drake University Professor of Politics, Dennis Goldford about how the midterm caucus results may impact the higher profile Presidential caucuses in two years. They also discuss Iowa's political leverage to reverse an EPA decision reducing the amount of ethanol blended into gasoline under the Renewable Fuel Standard.
