A year of political pregame gives way to a sprint into Iowa AP

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (AP) -

It's been a year of town halls and weekend forums and lunchtime meet-and-greets for those who would be president.

And nights spent sparring in televised debates.

And endless days fundraising to pay for TV ads, direct-mail fliers and organizers to get out the vote.

All of it is aimed at people who only now are starting to think about their vote for the White House.

Think about it this way: What happened in 2015 was the pregame show.

The race starts in earnest this week as voters begin to tune in and the candidates try to win them over during a four-week sprint to the leadoff Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1.

It's then that voters have their first say, moving pundits, predictions and polls aside for the voice of voters.
