Last Republican Primary Debate
Des Moines, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) - Another sure sign that it's political season in Iowa - debates are heating up across the Hawkeye State.
Thursday night, the five candidates hoping to fill retiring senator tom Harkin's seat faced off.
The Republican Party wants to grab that seat, since it's been held by the democratic senator for 30 years.
Joni Ernst, Matt Whitaker, Scott Schaben, Mark Jacobs, and Sam Clovis went head-to-head answering questions on everything from possible candidates they'd like to see run in the 2016 presidential race...to what sets them apart in this crowded race.
Political analysts say the debate didn't have any big missteps.
The primary is June 3rd and one of the candidates has to get 35 percent of the vote to win. If that doesn't happen, a special nominating convention will decide who will take on Representative Bruce Braley in November.
With that primary coming up, we have a reminder for you: Today (Friday) is the deadline for getting your absentee ballots in the mail for Tuesday's primaries.
If it's not in, your vote won't be counted.
Monday will be the last day for voters to fill out their absentee ballots in person.
Voting on Tuesday will be held in counties throughout the state.
