As voters head to the polls in Wisconsin we hear an excerpt of the five remaining candidates debating each other in Milwaukee on intelligence in the run-up to the Iraq invasion, whether President Bush lied to go to war and why Senators John Kerry, John Edwards and Joseph Lieberman voted to authorize the invasion.

In campaign news, voters head to the polls today in Wisconsin in the 17th contest of the Democratic presidential race.

Front-running Senator John Kerry has won 14 of the first 16 contests and a series of polls show him in the lead in Wisconsin.

Meanwhile, North Carolina Senator John Edwards declared that he would not quit the race and said he was now looking forward to what he said would be a two-way contest with Kerry heading into March.

Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean has vowed yesterday to continue his campaign beyond Wisconsin saying "Whatever happens tomorrow, we are going on." This comes after his national campaign chairman said he plans to shift his support to Kerry if Dean loses in Wisconsin.

All five candidates were in Milwaukee yesterday for a debate held at Marquette University and sponsored by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
