      Political Science professor and City Commissioner, Roger Marietta says Iowa is the first caucus state and that whoever wins Iowa gets a big boost in the campaign process.

      Those who win Iowa usually raise more money and is usually a front-runner for the seat in the White House.

      Iowa is a caucus state as opposed to Georgia, which is a primary state.

      "But in a caucus state, they actually meet in precinct meeting rooms and you have to have registered voters and whoever has the most registered voters, they get that delegate for that precinct," said Marietta.

      The Iowa caucus is in about six weeks.
