Kathie Obradovich has been covering Iowa government and politics for more than two decades. Her experience runs the gamut from her first job covering the night-cop beat for the Quad-City Times to covering the last four presidential caucus campaigns and the Iowa Statehouse. She joined the Des Moines Register as political editor in 2003, just a few months before the 2004 Iowa caucuses. The Register's caucus coverage won national awards that year, and again in 2008. She's also been the lead editor for the award-winning Iowa Poll. In June 2009, she took over from David Yepsen as the Register's political columnist. Kathie and her husband, Jim, live in Des Moines.
