Caucus Iowa: Journey to the Presidency showcases a political rite of passage more than four decades in the making. This yearlong project shows how Iowa became the political epicenter and launching pad for the world’s most powerful position, the president of the United States. The documentary includes recent interviews with political leaders from across the country on their memories of campaigning in Iowa and significant materials gathered from the Archives of Iowa Broadcasting, a special collection of the Wartburg College Archives. This is the first time this footage has been digitized and used for historical documentary purposes.
