This isn't the first time Republicans have tried to bail on the Iowa straw poll.
Steffen Schmidt, a political-science professor at Iowa State University, says the straw poll qualifies as a cherished American tradition.
"Let's have Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie debate each other at the Ames Straw Poll. I'm serious," Mr. Schmidt said. "The Democrats might think it's kind of tacky to copy the Republicans, but they're missing an opportunity to piggyback on a great event."
