"This is a familiar area for candidate Clinton, because she was also on top heading into Iowa the last time that she ran," one voice says, with ominous music playing in the background. "We all know how that turned out."

"She is out there repeating the same arguments," another voice adds.

The video ends with Clinton waking up in fright, followed by a caption that says "For Hillary it's Déjà Vu in Iowa."

"After last night's unmitigated disaster in Iowa, Hillary Clinton once again finds herself running neck and neck with an upstart challenger in a race that never should have been this close to begin with,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement.

Clinton won the Iowa Democratic caucus by a narrow margin over Sanders on Monday night despite huge advantages in endorsements and campaign infrastructure. In 2008, she trailed both then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.).
