, NORTH LIBERTY, Jan 25 – Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton on Sunday urged Iowa voters to choose her experience over the idealism of rival Bernie Sanders, who made the rounds of university campuses at the weekend to earn student support.
“I know some of you are still shopping. I’d like to shop too. I hope during the course of this afternoon to convince some of you,” Clinton told about 600 people packed into an elementary school gym in the town of North Liberty.
On February 1, voters in Iowa, in the US heartland, will cast the first ballots in the US presidential nominations process – a long road to Election Day on November 8.
Clinton, the 68-year-old former secretary of state, and Sanders, a 74-year-old senator from Vermont, are running neck-and-neck in some opinion polls, though Clinton enjoys a wide advantage on a nationwide basis.
