Political party officials in Scott County have been answering a lot of questions before Monday's caucuses. One of the most common is, "Where do I go to participate?"

Just about every presidential candidate is making their way through the Quad Cities ahead of the Iowa Caucuses on Monday. A large schedule of events in Davenport begins tomorrow, with democrat Bernie Sanders. He'll appear at the Danceland Ballroom at 5:30 pm.

Hoping to repeat his victory of four years ago, republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum started a 50-city final tour of the state over the weekend, leading up to the Iowa caucuses next Monday. 

At a town hall meeting in Davenport Monday, the former US senator from Pennsylvania said there are a lot of good republican candidates this year, saying the right things, but with little or no record of accomplishments.

Santorum says he has a long record of accomplishments in foreign policy, welfare reform, and trying to fix Social Security.

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders stopped in the Quad Cities today for a volunteer canvass. Around 150 people attended the campaign stop in Davenport--many were there to volunteer for Sanders, a Democrat.

Lisa Lewis Garman from Davenport helped organize canvass routes today, and has been volunteering since September. Once she decided she supported Sanders, her next step was to donate her time to his campaign.

 

While most volunteers are canvassing door-to-door, Air Force Veteran Nick Tsacudakis, from Davenport, says he's been helping out in other ways.
