"Reporters who have been tagging along with candidates in Iowa report hearing very little about impeachment or the Mueller investigation," Bowman, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, told host Jamal Simmons on Monday. 

She added that candidates are getting questions about health care and the state of the economy instead.

Democrats are divided on whether to pursue impeachment in the wake of the special counsel's report, and details it contained on whether Trump obstructed justice.
