URBANDALE, Iowa — The 2014 midterm elections are just over a week away, but it might as well be 2016 in the Hawkeye State. 

Prospective presidential hopefuls are swooping into Iowa as they try to boost support for House and Senate candidates — along with the added benefit of connecting with voters who play host to the first in the nation presidential caucuses.

Former President Clinton stumps with Braley on Saturday in Waterloo Electric Park Ballroom, where he'll headline the 10th annual Bruce, Blues and BBQ.

“It’s going to be electric there on Saturday night,” Braley told supporters Sunday at a canvassing rally here in Urbandale as he ticked off the big-name Democrats who are offering their time and support.

Across town that night, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, another Republican eyeing higher office, raised cash for Branstad at his annual birthday bash in Clive. Christie, the chairman of the Republican Governors Association, will be back in the state on Thursday to campaign for Branstad.

"America used to control events both here at home and around the world. And now it seems that our fate is being dictated to us by others," Christie told the crowd in what was described by The Associated Press as a presidential pitch. "It is because of the lack of leadership that we have in the White House. It has been six long years, but I bring you good news: There are only two more years left.”

Some Iowa voters said they’re downright sick of being bombarded by TV ads, phone calls and mailers this election cycle — and haven’t even tuned into the 2014 campaigns.

“I’m not looking at any of them really,” said Gwen Young, 58, a registered Republican who lives in Des Moines. “All the negative ads and all the phone calls, I don’t think they should call from the campaigns. That turns me off.”
