"It depends how hard Hillary wants to campaign in Iowa and what her message is. And right now it's secret. Nobody knows," said Mr. Hodgden. "We know what she's done in the past, but elections for president are about the future, and we need to know what Hillary Clinton wants to bring to the contest."
Like other party activists, Mr. Hodgden said he is waiting on Mrs. Clinton, who has been hunkered down in hopes that the scandal over her exclusive use of private email during her tenure as secretary of state will blow over.
