The Story

When an Iowa farmer and his family are dubbed “the typical caucus-goers” by the national media, the candidates prove that they will do anything to win their votes. An irreverent look at the first-in-the-nation Iowa Caucuses and the oversized role this undersized state plays in the presidential election process. With songs such as “Anything For a Vote” and “The Tough Question Sidestep,” the musical tells the story of an Iowa farm family and the candidates aggressively courting their votes.
