Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

As snow fell across the state, a joint statement was issued at noon on Monday, Feb. 5 by the Iowa Democratic Party and the Republican Party of Iowa: "The Iowa Caucuses will continue as planned this evening. We recognize the hardship that today's weather could cause for some caucus-goers to get to their caucus site this evening. However, after reviewing Iowa Code and our respective constitutions, there is no provision for us to postpone the caucuses due to weather."
