FYI...Since 1972, Iowa has kicked off the presidential primary process by holding the nation's first caucuses. When a largely unknown Jimmy Carter became the front-runner in the 1976 Democratic caucus, the national attention he received ultimately helped him to win the presidency - and solidified the importance of the Iowa caucuses.
