What are they doing New Year’s Eve? Two of the democratic presidential candidates are campaigning in Iowa. North Carolina Senator John Edwards campaigned this morning in eastern Iowa, wrapping up a three-day swing through the state. Edwards will spend 14 days campaigning in Iowa in January — nearly every day before the January 19th Caucuses. Massachusetts Senator John Kerry’s been here this week, too, talking farm policy and fending off a flurry of attacks from Howard Dean’s campaign about votes Kerry took in the Senate. Dean’s camp says Kerry voted against the interests of Iowa farmers in several instances. Kerry counters that Dean’s got it wrong and cited several of his votes to prove his point. Meanwhile, Howard Dean — the former Vermont Governor — was lambasted by Missouri Congressman Dick Gephardt for claiming to be the only candidate in the race who’s from a farm state. The only candidate who’ll be in this farm state tonight is John Kerry, who plans meet up with his wife at a party in Sioux City.
