Election - Small States #1

States with a small number of votes in the electoral college may play a larger part than usual in the upcoming election, thanks to the tight race for president. Today we're hearing about the political race in states that are often ignored in the big fall elections. Iowa has seven electoral votes.

Linda talks to David Yepsin, Political Columnist with the Des Moines Register in Des Moines, Iowa.
