Former Secretary of State John Kerry, the Democratic presidential candidate who lost to George W. Bush in 2004, made his first appearance of the 2020 campaign at a rally for Biden in Iowa, where he defended Biden's vote for the Iraq war, claiming Biden, then chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, had been deceived by Bush's promise to negotiate with Saddam Hussein rather than invade Iraq.
The accusation against Sanders comes as the Democratic primary takes a negative tone. Warren and Sanders are tied for top choice among female caucus-goers. A recent Monmouth University poll of Iowa found Biden leading the primary field in Iowa by six percentage points.
The voting in Iowa, the first of the 2020 election year, plays an outsized role in the selection of nominees for president. And on the eve of the party's first primary, voters are torn over a slate of high-profile candidates - ranging from a self-avowed socialist to a billionaire Wall Street baron - who represent the broad spectrum of change, ideologically and symbolically, that is today's deeply divided Democratic Party. What threshold did they have to meet?
We're up to the seventh debate, and down to six candidates. Those efforts could produce fireworks at Tuesday's debate.
Warren now is in the lead pack in Iowa and nationally. Read the full interview at The New York Times. Bloomberg, a late addition to the race, is not accepting donations to his unconventional campaign. The latest estimates peg Bloomberg's spending at $211 million and Steyer's at $106 million, with their combined total dwarfing the spending for the almost two dozen other candidates who have at one point or another sought the nomination.
Here at NPR.org, we'll provide live analysis throughout the debate. There were no casualties. The Trump administration maintains Soliemani was planning "imminent attacks" against USA forces, but conflicting information and a lack of publicly released intelligence has Democrats and some Republicans demanding more answers.
The feuding will likely expand to include almost every candidate on stage. His challengers have criticised the former senator for supporting military action in Iraq following the September 11, 2011, attacks in the United States. Expect Biden to try and fend off the criticism by championing his eight years of foreign policy experience while vice president. Whether they linger on it or not remains to be seen. National polls suggest that the topic is not changing any voters' minds about the president.
The bread-and-butter issue of healthcare in America is nearly certain to come up.

The Sanders campaign has called on Ms Warren to outright deny the claims, something she is yet to do. Their more moderate challengers are likely to continue calling the progressive plans for Medicare-for-all unworkable and political suicide in the general election.
Sanders' campaign did not immediately respond to a request to comment on Warren's confirmation of the CNN account. "The wrong person at the top of the ticket-and I'm not saying who that is-there would be down-ballot carnage all across the country, and I think that people are starting to recognize it", Richmond said.
Warren issued her own statement shortly after appearing to corroborate the CNN report.
"I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further because Bernie and I have far more in common than our differences on punditry".
All of this points to a reckoning in the Democratic Party that might come to a head in the next two months.
"The last couple of weeks here makes a enormous difference", Biden told staffers in Des Moines, going on to note that the race is essentially a "toss up" going into the debate.
In this scenario, the Democratic primary season might prove rather tiresome for the political press.
