Iowa Caucus

Voting in this year's presidential race kicks off today with the Iowa Caucus. KCRW will present NPR's complete wrap-up from 6-8pm. NPR's Robert Siegel hosts the special and will feature candidate speeches, newsmaker interviews, and expert analysis from NPR contributors E.J. Dionne (Washington Post) and Matthew Continetti (Weekly Standard), along with polling insights from the Pew Center's Andrew Kohut. We also hear from NPR's Mara Liasson and Ron Elving in our Washington Studios. NPR reporters Don Gonyea, Ari Shapiro, Ted Robbins and Sonari Glinton will join us from various candidate headquarters in the state; David Schaper will sit in on a caucus; and Brian Naylor will be with us from Manchester, New Hampshire, for a look ahead to that state's contest the following week.
