Some Clinton advisers have expressed concern about going after Sanders in his neighboring state given how voters in the state feel about him. "The President doesn't believe that, I don't believe that, and I think Senator Sanders is wrong about that".
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are shadowing each other across eastern Iowa, eager to carve out any advantage in a race that's deadlocked with just over a week until the state's lead-off caucuses.
"But given voters' thoughts about the gun control issue and who is more likely to win in November, the Clinton campaign might gain by pointing out Sanders' vulnerabilities in these areas".
Her latest attack comes just 11 days before the first votes of the primary season and with the polls showing the race getting closer each day.
In an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN's "The Situation Room", the Democratic presidential candidate pointed out that Sanders has been in the government much longer than she was.
In addition, Sanders, as a longtime Vermont neighbor, is perceived to be a "sort of hometown favorite" and has opened up a large lead in the counties bordering his home state, Suffolk University pollsters say. He has a lot of support from young people, but you know what?

The ad, released by Sanders' campaign today, shows off every day Americans while the Simon and Garfunkel song "America" plays. President Obama doesn't support that idea, Secretary Clinton doesn't support that idea, and it's not at all clear why Sen.
"I am leaning more toward Bernie but I have never heard anything that Hillary has to say besides the debates", Sigmund said.
The comment was the 2016 candidate's starkest assessment of the fact she is looking up at Sanders in the Granite State and a nod to the fact she lost Iowa in 2008 but won the New Hampshire primary a week later.
Sanders' spokesman Michael Briggs released statement on Thursday about "Hillary Clinton mudslinger David Brock".
Sanders said the polls show that he should be the choice for the Democratic nomination.
The speech was reminiscent of remarks Clinton delivered earlier in the campaign, when she focused on her record and her vision, not her opponents' differences and deficiencies. Sanders, on the other hand, served as an independent in the House of Representatives from 1991 to 2006 and has served as an independent senator since 2007.
