Trump isn’t facing any threats to his political standing among Republicans in Iowa, and the caucuses are expected to be something of a coronation for his reelection bid.

Neither is likely to put up a serious challenge to Trump’s claim to the GOP nomination. 

Parscale said the flurry of Caucus Day events in Iowa is intended to be something of a warning shot for Democrats, who are also holding their presidential caucuses in the state next week. 

“Our Caucus Day operation is just a preview of what is to come,” Parscale said in a statement. “This will be the strongest, best funded, and most organized presidential campaign in history. We are putting the Democrats on notice — good luck trying to keep up with this formidable re-election machine.”

Unlike the Republican caucuses, the Democratic caucuses are fiercely contested, with four candidates battling for the top spot in the state and several others vying for standout finishes that could boost their momentum ahead of later nominating contests.
