John Deeth Blog: Giuliani Opens Iowa City HQ

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Rudy Giuliani is the first Republican candidate with an office in
Johnson County. The Democratic stronghold, indelibly dubbed "the
People's Republic of Johnson County" by David Yepsen, may seem like an
odd spot for Giuliani to open only his second office in the state. But
the move actually reflects a subtle understanding of the caucus
process. Unlike the Democratic caucuses, where delegates are
apportioned to counties and precincts by a complex formula based on
general election returns, the Republican caucuses simply count raw
votes. Though Johnson County is the most Democratic county in the
state by percentage, it's still number eight in the number of
registered Republicans, one notch ahead of GOP rotten borough Sioux
County.
