With the New Hampshire primary four days away, candidates from both parties are making their final pitches to voters.

Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton landed political punches in a debate last night but also highlighted many areas of agreement.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump accused Ted Cruz of stealing Monday’s Iowa election¬†and the Republican field is winnowing down, with¬†Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum dropping out.

The last GOP debate before Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary takes place tomorrow night – without Carly Fiorina.

Joining Here & Now hosts Robin Young and Peter O’Dowd to talk all things New Hampshire are Rick Klein, political director at ABC News, and Asma Khalid, campaign reporter for NPR.
