The Iowa Caucus is taking place today, so WEMU spoke to political expert Edward Sidlow from Eastern Michigan University about how it could impact Michigan.

"I certainly think they will be watching closely to see who's successful and who's not successful, as it will help them begin to generate a game plan for who they might be supporting later on in the spring."

Michigan's primary presidential election will be in March.
