Candidates seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination to fight President Donald Trump’s re-election bid in 2020 have gathered for an event in Iowa.

The Polk County Steak Fry comes less than five months ahead of the state’s caucuses – the first to take place nationwide in each presidential election.

Event organizers said more than 12, 000 people attended the fundraiser.

Of the 19 Democrats left in the running, 17 spoke on Saturday.
