Dem Contest Heats Up

WASHINGTON, DC — There was a time when Democrats fretted about Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign becoming a coronation.

According to that thinking, Clinton would have been left without the tests of a primary season to prepare for the November matchup against the Republican nominee.

But not anymore.

In the past two weeks, the Democratic race has gone from a relatively civil disagreement over policy to a contentious competition between Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Clinton’s institutional strength and her support among minority voters still put her in a formidable position.

But should Sanders prevail in Iowa and New Hampshire — the first states on the 2016 nominating calendar — then Clinton’s bid to succeed President Barack Obama may mean a much longer and messier path than her supporters once envisioned.
