DES MOINES, Iowa (Des Moines Register) -- Iowa political officials announced today they have set the date for the 2000 presidential caucuses in Iowa for Monday, Jan. 24.

Kayne Robinson, the chairman of the Iowa GOP, told a press conference he will ask the party's state central committee to approve changing the date from Jan. 31 to Jan. 24.

Kim Warkentin, the executive director of the Iowa Democratic party, said the rules committee of the Democratic National Committee must approve the change today and "we're pretty confident everyone is going to vote for the date change." She said "we're saying the same thing" as the Republicans.

The change in dates is being made in order to stay eight days ahead of the New Hampshire primary, which is now scheduled for Feb. 1. Everyone expected that primary to be set for Feb. 8, but the secretary of state there surprised everyone by setting the date of the New Hampshire primary for Feb. 1.

Robinson said the Knapp Center at Drake University would serve as the reporting center for Republican results. Democrats said their caucus night center will be at the Hotel Fort Des Moines. Robinson said the change in dates will require some juggling of hotels and convention space in the city.
