CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Although about 500 people filled the room in Hillary Clinton's Cedar Rapids kickoff, not all were 100 percent committed to caucusing for her just yet, and the campaign knows it.

Clinton pushed her supporters to commit to her in Iowa, while speaking at a rally in Cedar Rapids prior to the Iowa Democrats Party Hall of Fame Dinner. Prior to Clinton's speech, six staffers and supporters took to the stage encouraging those in the crowd to "commit to Hillary," by signing up for tweets, newsletters or committing to caucus.

Iowa will be the first state to vote in February. Because of this, many candidates focus their early campaign efforts in Iowa.

"My prediction would be that Hillary wins the Iowa caucus, but people are reluctant," Iowa native Natalie Vernon said. "Iowans take caucuses very seriously and it is a deliberative process so the idea of having a front-runner is very counter-cultural to how the caucuses go around here."

Once she took the stage, the majority of Clinton's speech was light on policy, and rather focused on encouraging Iowans to join her campaign. She spoke of the GOP as being stuck in the past, telling Democrats that in order to beat Republicans "we need to have a movement" and "make an absolute claim on the future."

"You can say goodbye to refinancing student debt and making college more affordable, you can say goodbye to paid leave, to paid sick days, to equal pay for equal work for women because that is not part of their agenda," Clinton said in reference to the GOP. "So this election has to be about a lot more than my name of the ballot. "
