(NBC News) – A busy day on the campaign trail as candidates make a push this week to get the votes they need to be the nominee.
With 17 Republicans trying to get the nod and a new Democrat possibly entering the race, it’s more important than ever to make a good impression.
For the first time we are hearing from Hillary Clinton on the possibility of more competition. She addresses a challenge by the Vice President, Joe Biden.
Clinton says she always thought getting the Democrat nomination for President will be competitive.
She campaigned in Iowa, and for the first time she’s talking about the possibility of Vice President Joe Biden entering the race. “He should have the space and the opportunity to decide what he wants to do,” said Hillary Clinton.
She picked up big endorsements from the former governor of Iowa and the current Secretary of Agriculture.
Presidential candidates from both parties flooded Iowa and New Hampshire with events.
Senator Marco Rubio told workers in New Hampshire that he will not use the term anchor babies. He added…”Ultimately the Republican Party will reach out to all voters based on who our nominee is. And I don’t think Donald Trump will not be our nominee. So we have a process…” Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)/ Presidential Candidate
Former Governor Jeb Bush held an event in his home state of Florida looking for common ground with pro-choice voters. “There’s common ground between pro-life and pro-choice people that we ought to find and forge and make sure that this country respects life from beginning to end,” said Jeb Bush (R) Presidential Candidate.
Republican candidates went back to the issues to try and take back the spotlight.
There is a lot of campaigning left.
The first primaries for both parties in Iowa and New Hampshire are in February.
