Des Moines is an important city in United States presidential politics as the capital of Iowa, which is home to the Iowa caucuses. The Iowa caucuses are noteworthy for the amount of media attention they receive during U.S. presidential election years. It has been the first major electoral event in nominating the President of the United States since 1972. Many presidential candidates set up campaign headquarters in Des Moines. A 2007 article in the New York Times stated "if you have any desire to witness presidential candidates in the most close-up and intimate of settings, there is arguably no better place to go than Des Moines."
