The 2016 election contests are upon us and it all begins in The Hawkeye State. On Thursday night, Republican candidates, with the exception of one, faced each other on the debate stage... making their case to gain support from caucus-goers. And on Monday night, Iowans become the first-in-the-nation to make their presidential pick.

Dana Perino, former White House Press Secretary, co-host of FOX News Channel's "The Five" and best-selling author of "And the Good News Is..." and FOX News Digital Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt break it all down from Des Moines, Iowa.
