Caucuses

Joan Koenigs sits in her backyard Friday, Jan. 24, 2020 in San Tan Valley, Arizona where she will host a caucus for fellow Iowans wintering in the Phoenix area.

But this year, the Iowa caucuses won't all be in Iowa. Nearly 1,300 Democrats temporarily away from home will still attend the crucial first-in-the-nation caucuses from Paris or Palm Springs or dozens of places in between.(AP Photo/Matt York)
