Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton squeaked out a victory Monday over U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Iowa caucus. The next battle is New Hampshire where U.S. Senator Chris Murphy was campaigning for Clinton Monday.

Iowa caucus results show that the battle for Democratic delegates between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has ended in virtual tie.  Voters in New Hampshire, where Sanders is leading the polls, will have their say next week in the Granite State’s primary. Massachusetts Congressman Richard Neal will be campaigning for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire this weekend.  He’s not surprised by the close result in Iowa.

  As voting begins in a few days in the 2016 Presidential Campaign, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders may be the least political person in politics. But, he is leading Hillary Clinton in many polls. He’s closed the fundraising gap, and is drawing crowds of thousands to campaign rallies. Why?

With reporting from inside the campaign, personal relationships with Sanders’s friends and colleagues, and meticulous research, reporter Harry Jaffe offers a portrait of the ultimate outsider candidate, charting Sanders’s course from Brooklyn to Burlington, and now to Des Moines and beyond.

Harry Jaffe is a journalist covering Washington, DC—its politics, its crime, its heroes and villains. His new book is Why Bernie Sanders Matters.

  In five days, the polls and prognostications can go out the window: voters are finally going to caucus in Iowa.

  The Iowa Caucus is two weeks away. It’s the first formal balloting in the 2016 presidential election. As the candidates make their final pitches, voters are starting to make up their minds. And the results will give us the first real picture of who we could see in the White House come January 2017. What do you think?
