Wednesday (Tuesday in the USA)/ eyes on Iowa アイオワ州

Even the Japanese station NHK World reported on the first Republican primary vote on Tuesday in Iowa, noting Mitt Romney’s ‘win’.  (It was by a sliver of 8 votes, over Rick Santorum).    Hey, and it takes 5 Kanji characters to spell Iowa!  The state derives its name from the Ioway people, one of many American Indian tribes that occupied the territory at the time of European exploration.
