Political attention is focused squarely on Republicans, with a presidential candidates debate scheduled for Thursday and the Iowa Straw Poll set for Saturday in Ames. Democrats are seeking desperately to bring some of the spotlight back to their side, The Hill reports.

The Democratic National Committee has unleashed a week-long publicity campaign titled "Extreme Aims: Wrong for Seniors. Wrong for the Middle Class." The effort began with an Internet video calling some of the GOP candidates extremists who would jettison popular social programs.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama is traveling to Iowa as the first stop of his Midwest bus tour Aug. 15. And the Iowa Democratic Party is sponsoring multiple panel sessions this week to rebut criticism of the president.
