Clinton, Sanders shadowing each other across Iowa
DES MOINES - Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are shadowing each other across eastern Iowa, eager to carve out an advantage in a race that's deadlocked with just over a week until the state's lead-off caucuses.
The candidates' overlapping campaign schedules underscore the close eye the rivals are keeping on each other. They'll hold events in the towns of Clinton and Davenport within hours of each other Saturday, then continue circling each other as they work their way through the state's Democratic-leaning areas over the next week.
Clinton is seeking to hold off a late surge from Sanders, casting his domestic policy proposals as unrealistic and his foreign policy positions as naive. For his part, Sanders suggests that Clinton is the product of a political system that marginalizes the middle class.
