Democratic Presidential Contenders to Meet in So Called “High-Stakes” Iowa Debate

| | ,

Six Democratic White House contenders will take part on Tuesday in a “high-stakes” Iowa debate, as polls show no clear favorite. The Des Moines Register, is hosting the seventh primary debate at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, businessman Tom Steyer and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren will join the debate. The seventh debate in the race to find a November challenger to President Donald Trump will be the last face-to-face encounter among the candidates before Iowa’s caucuses on Feb. 3.

Some of the biggest strongholds for Biden and Sanders are in later early voting states – South Carolina for Biden and New Hampshire for Sanders – giving them more of a shot to recover from a poorer-than-expected showing. But a decisive win in Iowa could allow either of them to take control of the race.

The Iowa debate will be the first of four to be held in slightly more than a month as the first four states kick off the voting in February. The next debate will be Feb. 7 in New Hampshire, followed by debates on Feb. 19 in Nevada and Feb. 25 in South Carolina.
