2/2/14 - WHO-TV: THREE MINUTES: Reporter, Anchor And Author Dave Price
Channel 13’s Dave Price recently published his first book, “Caucus Chaos”. The book follows the chaos and bad calls from the 2012 caucuses in Iowa.
Price details the reason Strawn said he made the wrong call in the caucus and what the people behind it had to say. The person who came out of the 2012 caucuses the worst was Michele Bachmann, according to Price.
To talk politics, caucuses and writing a book, Price sat down with Dan Winters for Three Minutes in the Chair.

1/29/14 - WHO-TV: CAUCUS CHAOS: WHO-HD’s Dave Price Launches Book
by Sam Hoyle
A familiar face to Channel 13 viewers is now appearing on book shelves near you.
On Wednesday night, Dave Price celebrated the release of his book Caucus Chaos.
It’s an inside look at the 2012 Republican caucuses that ended with the infamous call of Mitt Romney as the winner. Rick Santorum had actually won by just 34 votes.
Dave says he spent two years hiding in his basement pulling together interviews with more than 100 people to finish the book, the first he’s written.
“When the UPS man delivered my first copy, it was pretty incredible to actually hold it,” the Emmy and Edward R. Murrow award winning reporter said. “It’s just a completely different experience to put a book together.”
You can buy the book online at CaucusChaos.com.
10/1/2013 - MEDIA BISTRO: Des Moines Reporter Uses Kickstarter to Publish Book on Iowa Caucus
WHO reporter Dave Price recently wrapped up a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise money for his self-published book about the 2012 Iowa Caucus titled Caucus Chaos.
“I wrote the book because there’s never been an Iowa Caucus like the one we just experienced,” Price told TVSpy. “The rise and fall of so many different candidates in less than one year’s time was remarkable and unprecedented. The name Caucus Chaos seemed to be the perfect fit.”
The political reporter for the Des Moines, IA, NBC affiliate was looking for $4,000 but raised more than $5,000.
Price said the book covers “everything that lead up to caucus night, the drama behind the infamous caucus night [Mitt] Romney declaration and the fears that followed that Iowa’s Caucuses may be damaged because of the way it all went down.”
“I never thought we would raise the money that we did,” Price added. “So incredibly cool so many people are interested in helping to share this story.”
