Iowa Progress: Caucuses Pit Father Vs. Son In Major Iowa Political Family

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress

Iowa State Representative McKinley Bailey announced his endorsement of
Joe Biden today. Bailey is a first term State Representative and was
widely courted by Presidential campaigns because of his service in
Iraq in the 82nd Airborne Division. Biden has picked up endorsements
from a number of Iowa legislators as part of his campaign's increased
focus on the caucuses. Bailey is also a member of a prominent
political family in Hamilton County. However, his father, Hamilton
County Supervisor Doug Bailey has not just endorsed Obama, but is a
member of Obama's statewide leadership team. It's also interesting to
note that Hillary Clinton announced her retirement savings plan in the
Bailey family's hometown of Webster City.
