DES MOINES, IOWA (NEWS10) — A week from today, Iowa will conduct the first contest of the 2016 presidential race.

Democrats are kicking off their big Iowa push with a CNN town hall Monday night in Des Moines.

While the republicans, hit the campaign trail hard in the final sprint before the Hawkeye state’s big day.

Meanwhile, frontrunners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both commented on the posibilty of former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg joining the race.

“I’d love to have him come in cause I love the competition frankly, I mean it would be great.. I’d love Bloomberg to come in,” said Trump.

“The way I read what he said is, if I didn’t get the nomination, he might consider it. Well, I’m going to relieve him of that and get the nomination,” said Clinton.

This past weekend candidates got key endorsements, the Des Moines Register endorsed Hillary Clinton for the democrats and Marco Rubio for the republicans.

A day later, Clinton picked up another endorsement from the Boston Globe and conservative voice Glenn Beck threw his support behind Ted Cruz.
