Protesters from across the country will be invited to help occupy all the presidential campaign headquarters in Iowa.

Under a plan approved at Occupy Iowa's meeting Monday night in
Des Moines, the protesters would go in the headquarters to share
their message. If they aren't let in, the protesters would try to
shut down the headquarters by sitting in front of their doors.

Occupy Iowa is an offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street movement
that started in New York to protest corporate greed and the growing
gap between rich and poor.

Iowa GOP Chairman Matt Strawn says that "it's ironic that this group would choose to disrupt the most grass-roots-oriented process in national politics - the Iowa caucuses."

The caucuses are scheduled for Jan. 3.
