Volunteers Find Iowans Warm During Cold Days of Campaigning
JANUARY 25, 2016

Mike Huckabee knows Iowa. He won the Republican Caucuses eight years ago and has campaigned hard here again this year.
"It forces candidates to go and ask for the vote one-on-one, in every town and every hamlet, every village," he said.
And behind every Huckabee campaign stop is a village of staff and volunteers headquartered in Des Moines.
"You wouldn't believe the response I'm getting on this phone," says phone bank volunteer Gary Leffler.
Gary is a volunteer who shares these people's belief that Huckabee should be the 45th President of the United States. He's from West Des Moines.
But nearby is Mallory Cupples. She's from Gov. Huckabee's home state of Arkansas.
"It's my first national campaign and I love it," she says. "I think it's the coolest thing ever."
It's certainly the coldest thing ever.
"It can get really cold," admits staffer Abby Lindsey. "I knew it was gonna be cold but I didn't know how cold."
Lindsey is also a Southerner facing an Iowa winter for the first time. She didn't know what to expect when she got the call in November to get a first hand Iowa Caucus experience.
