SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton is trying to build an organizational edge in Iowa as some of her lesser-known Democratic rivals clamor for attention in the state that tripped up her first presidential campaign.

Clinton flew to Iowa after her high-profile campaign kickoff Saturday in New York. She appeared at a Sioux City house party that night, telling supporters that "everybody has a role to play."

Despite her dominant position in the race, Clinton's allies are trying to erase the memories of her third-place finish in Iowa's 2008 caucuses.

Clinton is set to address supporters at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines on Sunday and then travel to the Mississippi River city of Burlington.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb are holding events in Iowa on Sunday.
