More 2012: Room for a GOP moderate in Iowa?

IOWA: J. Ann Selzer, director of the Des Moines Register’s Iowa poll, writes an op-ed in Politico saying that a moderate candidate could, statistically, win the Iowa caucus based on the circumstances of the 2008 caucus and 2010 primary – there were huge leaps in caucus participation, voter recruitment and the number of politically independent caucus-goers. “Iowa is a problem for moderate Republicans only if they believe the 2012 caucus will fit the mold of 2008. The best way for that to happen is for Republicans to let it happen.”

UTAH: Both of this presidential cycle’s native Utah sons will be back in their home state on the same day, June 24th, according to the Salt Lake Tribune – Jon Huntsman for a campaign event and Mitt Romney for two fundraisers.
