Iowa is a state that takes a few things pretty seriously: corn, wrestling, the State Fair.
And then there is my personal favorite — politics.
I’m Nic Garcia, the Des Moines Register’s politics editor. I joined the Register’s ace political team last year in large part to help this news organization cover the Iowa caucuses, the most exciting story for any political junkie. I learned — real quick — I wouldn’t need to wait for the caucus season to get busy. This state’s political engine revs constantly.
Our political reporters work tirelessly to keep you informed on all the twists and turns between the Capitol and Terrace Hill, the hallways of Washington D.C. and the cornfields of Kossuth County.
Currently co-authored by our statehouse team, Stephen Gruber-Miller and Ian Richardson, the daily politics newsletter offers you insight into the latest legislation and deal-making. Stephen and Ian will provide you with their most recent stories as well as their insight and expertise.
