The 2008 Election: On the Thursday, November 8 edition of The Iowa Journal

November 6, 2007

(Johnston, Iowa) – Thursday’s episode of The Iowa Journal will examine the candidates and the 2008 Presidential election. The program airs Thursday, November 8 at 8:30 p.m. on IPTV analog. The program will be rebroadcast Friday, November 9 at 9:30 p.m. on statewide IPTV-Plus and will also be available online at Iptv.org.

The program will feature a discussion with Mark Halperin, political analyst with Time Magazine and ABC News. Halperin has covered White House races for nearly two decades, bringing a wealth of hands-on expertise to his new book, “The Undecided Voter’s Guide to the Next President: Who the Candidates Are, Where They Come From, and How You Can Choose,” which covers the men and woman vying to become the 44th President of the United States.

During the Out and About segment, we travel to Orange City. Tourists might not realize it, but there's more to Orange City, Iowa, than wooden shoes, tulip beds, and Dutch windmills. Correspondant Dan Kaercher visits the hot spots in this very lively, exceptionally clean town in Iowa's Northwest corner.
