DescriptionA fight for control of the Iowa Legislature is brewing in the shadow of Iowa's pivotal role in the race for president.

Top-of-the-ticket influences will be key for Republicans, with President Bush expected to fight aggressively in a state he narrowly lost in 2000 and with the heavily favored U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley relatively free to drum up turnout.

Likewise, Iowa Democrats looking ahead to November say they expect to maintain the energy that resulted in record-setting turnout for the presidential caucuses in January.
