New York Times: “More than 1,300 Republican stalwarts at the Iowa state party’s Lincoln Dinner listened to the biggest field of 2016 presidential hopefuls to visit the state so far. In tightly paced speeches of 10 minutes each, 11 contenders displayed the broad spectrum of ideologies and personal styles in the party’s unsettled, chaotic race.”
“The formally dressed crowd was more subdued than the audiences at gatherings of specialized interests such as evangelical Christians. The crowd never came to its feet during the evening. Red-meat lines that draw whoops in other rooms fell flat in a cavernous convention center ballroom in downtown Des Moines.”
The Washington Post had a live blog of their remarks.
