CLEAR LAKE, Iowa — The Latest on nearly all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates speaking at Iowa's "Wing Ding" fundraiser (all times local):

6:25 p.m.

Democratic presidential hopefuls have begun speaking at the "Wing Ding" party fundraiser in northern Iowa, with Sen. Amy Klobuchar of neighboring Minnesota kicking things off.

Klobuchar is joking about the number of candidates set to speak Friday night in the town of Clear Lake, noting the event wasn't as well attended when she addressed it previously. She says, "Last time I had 20 minutes, and this time I have 20 candidates."

Klobuchar is also mentioning last week's mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, saying President Donald Trump has stoked fear and hate nationwide.

She adds, "He is afraid of" the National Rifle Association and having "a woman in the White House."

She is urging the crowd, "Let's build a future free of fear."

4:45 p.m.

Nearly all the Democrats running for president are descending on northern Iowa to make personal pitches to hundreds of would-be supporters in the state that kicks off presidential primary voting.

Around 20 candidates are speaking at Friday night's Wing Ding, an annual fundraiser featuring chicken wings in Clear Lake, population about 8,000.

The event coincides with the state fair in Des Moines, and most White House hopefuls have been crisscrossing Iowa for days, some by bus or RV.

Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke canceled his planned Iowa visit to remain in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, where a mass shooting killed 22 people.

O'Rourke said Friday on Facebook that he'll attend more funerals and continue hospital visits, but will rejoin the campaign "at some point" and "sooner or later."
