DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa caucuses will take place as planned despite snow that is expected to make travel difficult in much of the state.
The state Republican and Democratic parties issued a joint statement Monday morning stating that officials realized the wintry weather would make it difficult for some people to reach caucus sites. However, officials noted that after a review of state law and the party constitutions, there wasn't a provision to postpone the caucuses due to weather.
The meetings are scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Monday.
Because it's a non-presidential year, those who participate in the caucuses will elect party committee members and delegates.
