The White House race has been thrown wide open after frontrunners from both parties suffered setbacks in the first contest in Iowa. Candidates of all stripes have packed up and are now heading to New Hampshire.

The months-long presidential contest kicked into high gear Wednesday, with Democratic and Republican debates this week building up to next week’s primary in New Hampshire.

Flamboyant billionaire Donald Trump suffered a humbling defeat - polling more than 3 points behind Texan Senator Ted Cruz’s 27.7% in the Iowa caucus. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida is still in the race, polling 23%, DPA reported.

Among Democrats, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - long the presumed nominee - managed to win by a whisker after polling less than three tenths of a percent over Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. “I’m going to have some work to do to reach out to young voters -- maybe first-time voters who have to make a tough decision as they evaluate who should be our president, our commander-in-chief. I intend to do that,” Clinton told CNN after the results.
