CARL AZUZ, CNN 10 ANCHOR: Political headlines in the United States and abroad lead off today's edition of CNN 10. My name is Carl Azuz welcoming our viewers from around the world. Last night in the U.S. state of Iowa a series of meetings were held to help determine whom Americans will vote for in the 2020 presidential election. These are the Iowa caucuses. Voters will be moving around a room grouping up according to their favorite candidates and through this process they'll help determine a winner.
Two candidates are challenging U.S. President Donald Trump for the Republican party's nomination but the incumbent leader is expected to win it without a problem. For Democrats though, there are 11 candidates in the race and a win in Iowa could give any one of them a lot of momentum going into the other caucuses and primaries while a loss could make the path forward a lot harder. Results came in after we produced this show but CNN.com will have the latest. The next contest on the election calendar is set for next Tuesday when the New Hampshire primaries are held.
