Only on KWWL: Tom Brokaw election comments

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Tom Brokaw, from NBC News, has moderated "Meet the Press" since Tim Russert's death earlier this year.  He'll be alongside Brian Williams on election night.  Sunday, "Meet the Press" was aired live from KWWL.  After the show, we asked Brokaw what we can expect once November 4th rolls around.

"We'll be looking at Iowa and the battleground states. Iowa went for Bush last time so it's a pivotal state.  If Barack Obama can pick off Iowa and twin it up with a couple of the new states like Colorado or Nevada or Virginia or North Carolina, that's a very positive sign for him. If he doesn't do that early on, then it could be a very long night," said Tom Brokaw.

NBC and KWWL will have extensive live coverage on election night on air and online.  Stay with Iowa's News Channel Seven for the most comprehensive coverage of this year's local, state, and national races.

Watch for more on this interview with Tom Brokaw in the KWWL news at 5 all week.
