Candidates make final appeals to Iowans
Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders urges young Iowans to get out and caucus…
(SOUNDBITE) (English) BERNIE SANDERS, U.S. DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING:
“How would you like to make the pundits look dumb on election night?”
Without them, he says, he’ll lose.
Sanders is currently neck-and-neck in the polls with rival Hillary Clinton, who used one of her final pitches in Iowa to attack Sanders’ plan for free college tuition.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) HILLARY CLINTON, U.S. DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING:
“I do not believe giving free college to Donald Trump’s youngest child is in the best interest of all the hard-working Americans who need help.”
(SOUNDBITE) (English) DONALD TRUMP, U.S. REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING:
“The only thing that matters is the polls that’s going to be taken on Monday.”
On the Republican side, a tight race between New York billionaire businessman Donald Trump, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
But time is almost up. On Monday, it will be up to Iowans to decide who will be given the first victories of the 2016 campaign.
