One of the most difficult things about this election has been the tightening down of press and the number of events that are relegated to the stage. Beside a few events at a Pizza Ranch or a Coke bottling facility, the last weeks events have felt somewhat lacking on character. While I was in New York on an internship this summer, I missed the Iowa State Fair and a few other opportunities for interesting scenes in nice light. But, in the last two weeks I've been in search of moments both on the stage and away that highlight the quirkiness of the Iowa campaigns.
