Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) – Democrats are planning to respond to the Republican presidential candidates who remain the focus in Iowa ahead of Tuesday's caucuses.
The Democratic National Committee opened the Des Moines war room Sunday, which will serve as the "home base for all rapid response activities" including press conferences and media events, according to DNC Press Secretary Melanie Roussell.
In keeping with the DNC's systematic attacks on frontrunner Mitt Romney, the first press conference Sunday will go after the former Massachusetts governor's history as the top executive at Bain Capital. Randy Johnson, a worker laid off when Bain purchased American Pad and Paper Company, is scheduled to address reporters in Des Moines.
"Every time Mitt Romney opens his mouth to attack the president, Democrats will be immediately available to respond and let the people of Iowa know who Mitt Romney really is," Roussell told CNN.
Michael Czin, DNC assistant press secretary, said the DNC will highlight Romney's "inconsistent and dishonest campaign" as well as the "far right" positions of the entire GOP presidential field.
The DNC is set to hold at least one press conference per day ahead of the Tuesday's contest, according to Czin. Other Democratic officials, including DNC Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and DNC Communications Director Brad Woodhouse, will serve as surrogates throughout the Hawkeye State.
Although Obama is unopposed on the Democratic side of the aisle, the DNC shop in a downtown Des Moines hotel is the latest step by Democrats to build upon their ground game in the first-in-the-nation caucus state that they hope to once again capture in the 2012 general election.
"We have a high level of activism," Czin told CNN. "It's the bread and butter of the Democratic party."
