All eyes are on Iowa tonight as people head to caucus on behalf of the candidate of their choosing. How tonight plays out can make or break the 2020 Democratic candidates.
Will Iowans prefer a moderate former Vice President Joe Biden – the very man who is at the center of President Donald Trump's impeachment – or do they want someone who is on the more progressive side of the party, like Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) or Bernie Sanders (I-VT)?
Regardless of what Iowans decide, Biden has made a pledge: he will continue his campaign and keep trekking forward.
"We're gonna survive all the way through this whole thing," Biden told reporters outside of his Des Moines field office on Monday.

It will be interesting to see what percentage of the vote Biden gets. He's supposed to be the "go-to" candidate for the Democrats. Everyone has made the assumption that he's going to get the party nomination. But polling and the mainstream media seem to be more excited and motivated to vote for someone that's more progressive.
People have repeatedly hammered him for his actions in Ukraine. It's hard for people to defend the fact that he abused his position and power to get his son a gig that paid $83,000 a month. Hunter Biden had no natural energy experience yet he got a position on the board of Burisma. He's making more in one month than most families do in a single year. That's the kind of swampy behavior people hate.
But you just keep on, keepin' on, Joe. Maybe you'll eventually remember what state you're in.
