Over 700 people are gathered in a building on the Iowa State Fairgrounds this evening for the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition’s annual fall fundraiser. Several Iowa Republican candidates spoke to the crowd. Joni Ernst spoke right after The DMR Iowa Poll was released. (Hear Ernst here.)
Three prospective 2016 presidential candidates spoke to the crowd as well. Their speeches are posted below.
AUDIO of Wisconsin Senator Paul Ryan’s speech, 9:13
AUDIO of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, 38:00
AUDIO of Texas Senator Ted Cruz, 32:00
Cruz, who was the closer for the event, began his speech with a couple of jokes about the White House fence jumper, suggesting there was another one today who was told: “I’m sorry Hillary. Not yet.”
Later, Cruz inserted HRC in a discussion of cases before SupCo. “We ought to invite Hillary Clinton to debate the Little Sisters of the Poor,” Cruz said.
