Democratic presidential candidates greet the crowd at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Des Moines, Iowa

Sanders contrasts his record with Clinton's at Iowa dinner

Democratic presidential candidates greet the crowd at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Des Moines, IowaBy Amanda Becker DES MOINES, Iowa (Reuters) – U.S. presidential candidate Bernie Sanders contrasted his record with that of Hillary Clinton on key issues, including his early support for same-sex marriages and consistent opposition to the Iraq war, during a Democratic fundraising dinner in Iowa on Saturday. The annual dinner in the early-voting state has become a bellwether of Democratic support, and it was the first time that Sanders, Clinton and former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley have appeared on the same stage since the first Democratic debate on Oct. 13. While the debate was a largely genial affair in which the candidates complimented one another and disagreed on policy specifics, Sanders used the Jefferson-Jackson dinner, attended by more than 6,000 Democrats, to highlight differences with front-runner Clinton, without mentioning her by name.
