Report: Iowa caucuses tentatively scheduled for January 3

“We had a real clear consensus last night that we want Jan. 3rd,” said Drew Ivers, a member of the Iowa GOP central committee who is from Webster City.

The tentative agreement was reached during Iowa GOP Central Committee phone conference last night, Ivers said.

Chairman Matt Strawn wanted to wait to publicly talk about the Jan. 3rd date until Monday as a courtesy to officials involved with ongoing talks with New Hampshire, Ivers said.
