It's day one of the "Cast Your Kernel" corn poll here at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines. It's "only" about 90 degrees. It feels like about 190!
Duncan Hunter was our first v.i.p. guest here. He showed up in a suit. Yes, a suit. My obvious question to him...why a suit? He said he needs to get people to pay attention to him as he walked around. Wearing a suit, he said, would do that. The medics may need to pay attention, as well.
Hunter brought a handful of family members with him...his brother, sister-in-law and two nephews. His son, Sam, also came along. I'm pretty sure both Sam and his dad wore the same clothes yesterday.
I asked Hunter what food he most wanted to eat while he was here. "Corn." That's all he said.
