Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton in Iowa -- in the final stretch before Iowa voters convene for their caucuses Monday. As she campaigns Friday -- The State Department announces it will withhold seven private email chains of former U.S. Secretary of State because they contain top secret information. Clinton's campaign wants those emails released : issuing a statement saying; "We firmly oppose the complete blocking of the release of these emails." In Iowa voter Sarah Bell says the issue raises questions. (SOUNDBITE) (English) SARAH BELL, IOWAN VOTER, SAYING: "I do think she is a good person and I do think she would make a good president, but the fact that she is hiding emails does make me a little hesitant about what else she would hide, what's in those e-mails? For sure, it makes me a little hesitant about it, yeah." Matt Vondrasek visiting the state thinks the issue will pass. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MATT VONDRASEK, VISITOR TO IOWA, SAYING: "There have been worse issues that have plagued candidates. I don't think it's going to be a terrible issue." Mike Phillips who plans to caucus with Republicans is waiting to see how it will play out. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MIKE PHILLIPS, IOWAN VOTER, SAYING: "It seems It's just trickling out and everybody is just waiting to see what the Justice Department and FBI is going to do and wondering if they've got the guts to take her on. " Just which way the wind is blowing for Clinton in Iowa will be known in just a matter of days when Iowa becomes the first state to officially weigh in on race for the White House.
