Republican presidential rivals Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis hold competing events in the early nominating state of Iowa on Saturday.
DeSantis had long planned to attend the Iowa State Fair on Saturday, a political must for aspiring presidential candidates in the state that kicks off the Republican nominating contest in January.
Trump’s late announcement on Tuesday that he was also going to attend the event on the same day as DeSantis amounted to a political gate-crashing of DeSantis’ appearance.
DeSantis is making a high-risk bet that he can halt Trump’s march to the Republican presidential nomination by winning Iowa. (Reuters)
