Politicians Woo Iowans at Agriculture Summit

How Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum and Rick Perry tried to woo Iowa voters.

— -- While Iowans were busy parsing potential presidential candidates’ stances on agriculture policy at the first-ever Ag Summit in Des Moines, politicians tried ingratiating themselves to those living in the state who will be the first to caucus in 2016.

This weekend marked Jeb Bush’s first appearance in the Hawkeye State in more than two years. But he made sure to remind Iowans that he had been to the land of pork and corn before.

Other potential candidates were a bit more subtle, highlighting their agriculture experience in an effort to be popular in a state with over 80,000 farms.
