COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa. (KMTV) — The clock is ticking until the first big vote in Iowa and campaigns are ramping up ahead of next week's caucuses.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar made a quick stop at an Iowa bar with a break in the Senate impeachment trial.

Now, with just six days until the Iowa caucuses, people are feeling the pressure… And that's really the big story here--have residents decided on a candidate?

"I expected to have clarity by now, but I don't really," said one resident.

Iowa caucus-goers interested in Sen. Klobuchar came to listen to one final pitch in hopes to solidify their choice.

"I’m not sure who to vote for... I mean, I know what side--but not sure which candidate," said another resident.

With less than a week to decide, Sen. Klobuchar is asking voters to look at her track record when making their decision on Feb. 3.

"I consistently bring in voters with me and you want someone like that can really lead a ticket," said Sen. Klobuchar.

She talked Medicaid, climate change and how she works with both sides of the aisle to get things done.

Currently, Sen. Klobuchar is being pulled away from the campaign trail with the impeachment trial.

She is relying on help from Iowans in the next week.

"I need you to run for me so I can keep advancing in this primary season. And there was a bunch of people that said sign me up," said Sen. Klobuchar.

Some of the voters we spoke with are looking for not only the candidate that can win the democratic nomination, but someone that can rally moderate swing voters as well... and challenge President Trump.

"Under normal circumstances, I would be very much with Bernie and Elizabeth. I am very much a progressive democrat, but this one is so concerning to me that I want to find that candidate that can toe the line and pull in all these different groups," said one voter.
