Hawkeye GOP: The 2010 caucus on a Saturday

Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye GOP

The Republican Party of Iowa announced today that the 2010 Cacucuses
will be held on Saturday, January 23rd at 1pm. The Iowa Democratic
Party has agreed to hold their caucuses at the same time. I was on the
State Central Committee when we chose the date and the intent was to
try and get more voters involved in what are generally, lightly
attended non-presidential year caucuses. The Des Moines Register's
Katie Obradovich says: That's a really good idea and it will serve as
a great test before the next presidential-year caucuses in 2012. Don't
expect to see Saturday caucuses in a presidential year. In order to
get the maximum effect from Iowa's First in the Nation Caucuses, they
need to occur during a normal weekday news cycle.
