Washington (CNN) - As Republican presidential hopefuls continue whirlwind campaign events in Iowa in advance of next week's caucuses, the Obama campaign is planning for the president to speak to his Iowa supporters via the web Tuesday night while the GOP caucus results come in.
A Democratic campaign official told CNN the technology is new and is a version of the web chat feature "Skype" but on a much larger scale.

President Obama is expected to return to Washington, D.C. from his Hawaiian holiday early next week. The campaign official, who did not want to be identified by name, said the president will speak from Washington to his supporters gathered in various locations in Iowa via a web chat called Adobe Connect.
Four years ago, Mr. Obama's surprising eight-point win in the Iowa caucuses gave him the initial momentum that eventually allowed him to surge past then-Sen. Hillary Clinton after a long fight for the Democratic nomination.
