A captivating look at the beginnings of the electoral process to select the Republican Presidential nominee, Caucus uses its remarkable access to the GOP candidates to deliver an engaging behind-the-scenes dissection of the 2012 Iowa primary.
Following the seven Republican presidential hopefuls, Caucus documents former Massachusetts governor and eventual 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney; former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum; former Georgia congressman Newt Gingrich; Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann; Texas Governor Rick Perry; entrepreneur Herman Cain; and former Texas congressman Ron Paul as they jockey and try to position themselves for victory at the Iowa caucus. As the candidates move between town halls, debates, pizza shops, and barbecues, director A.J. Schnack capitalizes on his often intimate access to deliver a rare view of the candidates that cuts away the rhetoric and superficial posturing to reveal glimpses of honesty and candor. This is a must for all political junkies.
