NBC's Chuck Todd says that skipping Iowa could be a big mistake for Jon Huntsman and Mitt Romney.
From MSNBC's First Read:
Memo to the Mitt Romneys and Jon Huntsmans who aren’t making Iowa a priority right now: Obama is in the Hawkeye State today because it’s a swing state. And by not aggressively playing in Iowa, are they downplaying their Iowa chances in the general? Consider: It’s very difficult THIS CYCLE to imagine how a Republican nominee gets to 270 electoral votes without winning two of the three states of Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The road to the White House for a Republican goes through the Midwest -- or it doesn't happen.
