Race for White House heats up

The race to the White House is heating up.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spent Saturday in the shadow of New York City, speaking to a crowd of thousands on Roosevelt Island. She spent Sunday stumping at the Iowa Fair Grounds.

Clinton was hoping to get in as much campaigning as possible before her potential GOP opponent, Jeb Bush, is expected to toss his hat into the ring.

Bush is holding an event in Miami Monday, where he's expected to formally announce his candidacy for the presidential nomination.

With Clinton's campaign continuing to evolve, and Bush's campaign just about ready to begin, there is little doubt that over the next few weeks, there will be a lot of attention on the match up.
