DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) – All signs point to January 3–the same day the state's Republicans will hold theirs.
Carrie Giddins, communications director for the Iowa Democratic Party, said a notice will be sent out to members of their state central committee early Thursday afternoon alerting them to a conference call to be held at 8pm central time Sunday night.
"On that call it will be recommended that the caucuses move to January 3," Giddins told CNN.
The Iowa caucuses had been tentatively scheduled for January 14 for both parties, but on October 16 the Republican party's state central committee voted and chose January 3 for theirs. It was not certain whether or not both parties would end up holding their contests on the same day, even though tradition has typically made that the norm.
