I have a new blog post up at the Monkey Cage on the Iowa caucuses. Unlike in Congress where only a single Republican has made an endorsement, the majority of Republicans in the state legislature (47 of 82) have decide to endorse a candidate. That candidate is Ted Cruz. Only a single state legislator has endorsed Donald Trump.


When you include retirees, the picture changes significantly. Now, Jeb Bush is in the lead. The question is whether retired state legislators have the pull of sitting ones.
