"when we started this campaign here in iowa, we were 50 or 60 points behind secretary clinton. we have come a long, long way" "we've run a terrific campaign from the grass roots up ... of course it's close its competitive that's why i hope everyone who has decided to caucus for me will come out monday night." the biggest turnout iowa ever had was the 2008 caucuses where about one in six
