Caucus (cau cus) n., a meeting of a group of persons belonging to the same political party or faction usually to decide upon policies or candidates.
The Iowa Caucus, Jan. 3, 2012
Since 1972, the Iowa caucus has been the first major electoral event of the nominating process for president. Although only about one percent of the nation’s delegates are chosen by the Iowa State Convention, the Iowa caucuses have served as an early indication of which candidates for president might win the nomination of their political party at that party’s national convention.
