HawkEyes on Iowa (February 3)
Democrats are watching Iowa like a Hawk, as Iowa was in the top two in spending of most every Democratic candidate, except Steyer. Buttigieg is looking to connect with his fellow Midwesterns to break through with a high finish as he is the #1 spender in the state. Steyer was the second largest spender in Iowa even though he spent more money in 3 other states. Yang spent 56% of his budget in Iowa while three other candidates spent over 10% of their budget (Buttigieg 18%, Biden 16%, and Klobuchar 13%). The only candidates not spending in Iowa are Gabbard and Bloomberg, although Bennett has shifted his spending from Iowa and is now exclusively spending in NH.
