It’s another weekend closer to the important Iowa presidential caucuses, and that’s brought lots of the Republican candidates to the state that’s first on the 2016 election calendar.
Front-runner Donald Trump was at a rally in Spencer where he urged supporters to do all they can to make it to the caucuses on Feb. 1. A hoarse Trump said a strong showing was essential for his campaign — and turning out is everything.
He told the crowd that even if the night before the caucuses, someone had caught their spouse cheating — well, they still needed to show up for the sake of Trump’s candidacy.
Later, in Cedar Rapids, some of Trump’s rivals are speaking at an economic summit sponsored by the tea party-backed FreedomWorks.
