Voters in Iowa are preparing to head to the polls to narrow down the filed of Democratic presidential hopefuls.

The Background:

The AP reports:

A Democratic presidential campaign that has cost more than $1 billion, and narrowed but not yet clarified the field of Trump challengers arrived at its first big decision day Monday in the Iowa caucuses.

Candidates gave last-minute pep talks and pitches, while hundreds of volunteers activated statewide to win the famed Iowa caucuses. By day’s end, tens of thousands of Democrats will have participated in the premiere of more than 50 contests that will unfold over the next five months. The caucuses will render the first verdict on who among dozens of candidates is best positioned to take on President Donald Trump, whom Democratic voters are desperate to beat this fall.

Why It Matters:

One day closer to ending this charade.
