This news is from the USA. There are two political parties in the USA. They are the Republican Party and the Democratic Party.

Each party has two presidential candidates. Each party must only have one candidate. The party must choose. The party members choose the candidate.

The Democrats are choosing between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. The Republicans are choosing between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

Iowa is a state in the USA. It is in the American Midwest.

Trump loses in Iowa. The Republican Party members do not choose him. They choose Ted Cruz.

Difficult words: party (a group of politicians – people who help run a country), presidential candidate (somebody who wants to be a president), member (somebody who is part of a group of people).

Which candidate do you like?
