Top 2020 Democratic presidential candidates will make the rounds on the Sunday network show circuit to make their case as the New Hampshire primary approaches this Tuesday.

The New Hampshire contest will be the first-in-the-nation primary following the disastrous Iowa caucuses that took place this week. 

Monday’s caucus in the Hawkeye State left the candidates, voters and Iowa Democratic Party (IDP) in chaos and uncertainty this week after technical difficulties led to late results and questions over accuracy.

However, once the full results were released on Wednesday, two contenders — Sen.
