Historically, the Iowa caucuses have had major political implications for presidential hopefuls. As the first state contest, it is a chance for candidates to make their initial impression on the electorate by demonstrating their ability to build support or floundering in their first major campaign test. In 2024, the Iowa caucuses helped Republicans determine which candidate has the best chance of challenging Donald Trump for the party’s nomination. 

On January 18, Governance Studies at Brookings hosted a discussion moderated by Senior Fellows Elaine Kamarck and E.J. Dionne, Jr. along with a panel of experts who discussed the results of the 2024 Iowa Republican caucuses and determine their likely impact on the race.
