A training session at the Ames Library on Bird Dogging - how to prepare and ask tough questions of candidates, regardless of their political party - was given by a group called “Governing Under the Influence,” sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee. We pass along some of their advice, as we Iowans enter into the season for vetting candidates. More tips from “Governing Under the Influence,” can be found at their web site
