Politics Day: Bernie Sanders Joins 2020 Democratic Candidates

Feb 20, 2019

In 2016, Sen. Bernie Sanders (D) was defeated in the Iowa caucuses by the closest margin in the history of the contest; and he’s back for the 2020 election.

In this edition of River to River, host Ben Kieffer asks political analysts, Rachel Caufield and Dennis Goldford of Drake University, how Sanders’ entry shapes the crowded field of candidates. They also discuss a new Iowa poll showing that while support from Trump’s border wall has increased, Iowans are still split on the matter.
