(CNN) - The 2008 presidential candidates have taken a day or two off from campaigning in Iowa in recognition of the Christmas holiday. But, not Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Connecticut. Dodd doesn't have to leave Iowa for the holiday because he relocated his wife and two daughters to the Hawkeye State earlier this year.
Dodd is the only White House hopeful to have a campaign event scheduled for Monday. The senator plans to assemble care packages for Iowa National Guardsmen deployed overseas at an event in Carroll, Iowa.
