Just two days before voters finally weigh-in, Candy is live from Des Moines to preview the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses.
First, Candy is joined by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas). Will he rock the political world with a win? And what does he have to say to his fellow Republicans who claim he’s helping re-elect President Obama?
