Michael Cohen, a V.P. and counsel to the Trump Organization, is off to Des Moines to meet with top GOP lawmakers, operatives and volunteers today.
Iowa hosts the first presidential caucus, scheduled for February 6. "I'll be gauging the reception I feel he would have if he comes to Iowa," Cohen said.
