US election circus hits Iowa

Romney and Obama's presidential campaigns continue searching for new ways to win the battle for the Midwest.

    Iowa is a state under siege. On the ground and over the airwaves, this mid-western farm state is a central battleground in the race for the White House.

    It has become a regular stop along the campaign trail for both President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney and recent polls show that both candidates are neck-and-neck in the crucial swing state.
