Iowa is, of course, the state where the presidential primary/caucus season begins, and where back in 2008 a young upstart senator by the name of Barack Obama pulled an upset over then Sen. Hillary Clinton, on his way to winning the democratic nomination for president. Clinton never recovered from that opening blow, and is there now for campaign events on Tuesday. That’s where we find Aaron in Cedar Rapids Tuesday morning. Sen. Marco Rubio will be heading there at some point as well, as will the rest of the GOP field, as the presidential focus sharpens on Iowa.

Congress has returned from a 2-week recess, and there is work to do, not to necessarily expect much to get accomplished. But some things just need to happen, one way or the other. Of course, Congress wants to take a look at the Iran nuke deal whenever that is finalized, probably not for a few weeks. But they want to pass a bill requiring they get a look, and that debate starts pretty soon. We may finally see Loretta Lynch confirmed as Attorney General. Then there are a host of budget issues… there are always a host of budget issues… and let’s not forget lingering laundry like Benghazi
