Iowa Democratic Party chairman Troy Price speaks to members of the media during a news conference, Monday, Feb. 10, 2020, in Des Moines, Iowa.

From the 2020 caucuses way back in February (yes, that was this year) to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and related education concerns, 2020 has been a year of unimaginable and unrelenting news.
