IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — After weeks of fits and starts, the battle to win Monday's Iowa caucuses reaches a crescendo this weekend as Democratic presidential candidates crisscross the state eager for a breakout moment that could shake up a race dominated so far by a persistent top tier of four contenders.
For the first time this week, the six candidates making the biggest play for Iowa were all in the state. Freed from President Donald Trump's impeachment trial for the next several days, Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar quickly returned to Iowa eager to make up for lost time Saturday. Warren arrived late Friday and went straight to an impromptu event at a Des Moines bar to share a beer with dozens of cheering supporters.
