The Huffington Post's Sam Stein appeared on MSNBC's 'Hardball with Chris Matthews' on Thursday to discuss potential GOP presidential candidates.

Matthews brought up the significance of Iowa in the nominating process.

Stein explained that the candidates who are successful in Iowa do not always necessarily win the nomination. He elaborated, "Iowa is a good place to serve as a launching pad, and I think institutionally helps promote sort of the more Evangelical, what liberals would say crazier, candidates out there, but it doesn't necessarily mean that the winner is going to be the Republican nominee."
