.@KamalaHarris spends Sunday dinner with the Grimm family in Ames, IA, part of her shift to more intimate meetings with Iowans #IACaucus
Yes, that’s @KamalaHarris, wearing her apron to help w/Sunday supper at the Grimm home in Ames, IA. She’s talking about immigration & education, issues that this family is asking her about #IACaucus
.@KamalaHarris is making her homemade salad dressing with the kids. Sunday supper has always been grounding for this Presidential candidate. The apron? It says ‘Kamala Harris For President,’ handmade by the Grimm kids #IACaucus

I tell people all the time that campaigning in Iowa is different than anywhere else. And I’ve been trying to find the best way to explain what I mean by that. Tonight, I was knocking doors in Poweshiek County, and met Lamoyne, a former county supervisor there. #IACaucus
We began talking about the caucus and the importance of personal interactions with caucus-goers.

When I asked what issues he sees in the community, he talked a lot about concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs).
CAFOs, for those who are unaware, are industrial-sized livestock operations, meaning that animals are confined at least 45 days or more per year in an area without vegetation.

The main part about CAFOs, are that they produce *huge* amounts of animal sewage and other pollutants.

Since so many of us are working on syllabi--or not working on them to enjoy the final weeks of the summer--let me share a few links that help me plan my classes (and procrastinate a little while longer on my own)....
1. For Course Schedule making, I use @wcaleb's Syllabus Maker @RiceCTE which Auto generates a calendar for you:
2. For questions of "how much reading/writing do I assign?" I use the award-winning, research-based Course Workload Estimator made by Elizabeth Barre & @JustinEsarey also found at @RiceCTE

.@Abby4Iowa says of her work in Washington: "I didn’t go there to be a part or a star in a reality TV show. I went there to have your backs and to find common ground in the places that we can." #IowaCornFeed #iacaucus

Biggest cheer during @iowademocrats chair @troymprice's opening remarks came after he predicted #Iowa Ds will "send @joniernst into an early retirement." #IASen #HallofFame
Sen @CoryBooker is 1st candidate to speak at #HallofFame event. (19 candidates will each have 5 minutes)
"We are being tested. This is a moral moment in America, and we must meet this test. I'm running for president because we can't take 4 more years of Donald Trump." #iacaucus
But @CoryBooker isn't just running to beat Donald Trump. That's the floor, not the ceiling. We can't just run on what we are against. Democrats need to tell people what we are for. "Every American needs health care, and make no mistake, abortion is health care." #iacaucus

1) Disturbing to me in #Mueller indictments was allegation of #Russia plant of #IaCaucus #Fraud stories. That broke the back of the party in #Iowa 4 2016 cycle. Caused mass party switches to independent in some parts of #IA. Remember #DemExit? #TrumpRussia #IaPolitics #IaDem
When #DemExit on #twitter & #FB was ongoing, I had a face2face discussion in #Fairfield of voter registration changes at the #JeffersonCounty court house. There were quite a few -- a direct consequence of #Bernie people being angry cuz they had seen SM fraud stories. #IaPolitics
3) I really saw damage from #TrumpRussia #IaCaucusFraud allegations in Oct 2016 going door-to-door in #Fairfield. The #DemVoter lists were "squishy." Lots of changed parties, lots of discussion of the #IaCaucus allegations of fraud and not voting #IaDem. #Mueller #iapolitics
