How Presidential Candidates’ Iowa Visits May Have Paid Off This Caucus

For Presidential candidates, the number of days spent in Iowa can be important.

On Monday night, Trump’s front-runner position was overturned by Cruz, a candidate that made over 120 stops in the Hawkeye state, per the latest ABC News’ count. In contrast, Trump, only made 39 visits including his caucus night watch party, according to the ABC News’ count.

Prior to last night’s win, Cruz had spent 45 days in the state since he announced his bid, often with multiple events, while Trump had spent 28 days, usually just holding one rally each time.
