HOW A SMITHLAND

FAMILY HAS BEEN

CARRYING THE

TRADITION ON FOR

MORE THAN 4

DECADES...

" "

WHILE MANY

CHOOSE BIGGER

LOCATIONS SUCH

AS GYMS..

LIBRARY'S AND

CHURCHES...

SINCE THE 70'S THE

BROMANDER'S

HAVE BEEN

CAUCUSING FROM

THE COMFORT OF

THEIR OWN HOME..

CHOOSING TO DO

THINGS THE OLD

FASHIONED WAY.

"2 SECOND NAT OF

MACHINE FEEDING

COWS,"

FOR CHARLES

BROMANDER

CAUCUS DAY ISN'T

JUST ANOTHER DAY

ON THE FARM...

"WE'RE HOLDING

THE CAUCUS FOR

THE 42ND

PRESCIENT AND

ALSO THE 43RD

PRESCIENT AT OUR

HOME MY MOM DID

IT FOR YEARS,"

CHARLE'S MOM,

ADELENE HELD

IOWA'S FIRST EVER

CAUCUS IN HER

HOME... NEARLY 5

DECADES AGO...

"I'VE TOLD HIM IT'S

HIS TURN

DIDN'T MIND.. DID

YOU CHARLES?,"

NOW IT'S CHARLE'S

TURN TO KEEP THE

GROWING

TRADITION GOING...

MOVING THE

CAUCUS FROM THIS

SMALL LIVING

ROOM...TO A MORE

SPACIOUS SHED....

CROWD CLOSE TO

60 PEOPLE PACKED

INTO THE HOUSE,"

HOME REPUBLICAN

CAUCUS 4 YEARS

AGO... AND

ANOTHER HIGH

EXPECTED AGAIN

THIS YEAR... THEY

THOUGHT IT WAS

TIME FOR MORE

ROOM.

"I FEEL LIKE YOU

PROBABLY GET

MORE

PARTICIPATION

FROM THIS TYPE OF

CAUCUS BECAUSE

PEOPLE KNOW WHO

THEY ARE GOING TO

AND WHO TO

EXPECT TO SEE

THERE,"

BUT EVEN WITH THE

CHANGE IN

SCENERY... THEY

PLAN KEEP THE

HOMEY

ATMOPSPHERE YOU

CAN'T GET AT

PUBLIC

LOCATIONS....

"THERE WILL BE

COFFEE AND TEA

AND LEMONADE

AND HOMEMADE

BARS AND PEOPLE

WILL BRING THINGS

TO THE CAUCUS

AND EVEN WHEN

WE HAVE THE VOTE

THEY WILL SIT

AROUND AND VISIT

AND CATCH UP ON

STUFF,"

KEEPING A CLOSE

KNIT COMMUNITY...

EVEN CLOSER ON

CAUCUS NIGHT...

"SOMETIMES WE ALL

GET TOO BUSY AND

YOU ONLY GET TO

SEE YOUR

NEIGHBORS AT

CERTAIN HAPPY

OCCASIONS AND

THIS IS A GOOD

OCCASION SO IT

BRINGS OUT A LOT

OF DIFFERENT

VIEWS AND

HOPEFULLY A LOT

OF DIFFERENT

DISCUSSION,"

"WOULDN'T MISS IT

WOULDN'T MISS IT!,"

ADELENE

CHARLES SAYS HE

PLANS TO

CONTINUE TO HOLD

THE CAUCUS AT HIS

HOME FOR MANY

YEARS TO COME...
