The Executive Director of the Iowa GOP expects a crowd of 50,000 to attend the August 11, 2007 straw poll at the Hilton Coliseum in Ames.
The event will be the first true field test for the GOP candidates. All of the candidates except for Mayor Giuliani, have confirmed they will attend. Though Giuliani is presently undecided, it is expected he will participate.
With so much on the line in this first test, what will candidates do to better their standings between now and August?
