SIOUX CENTER, Iowa - Republican front-runner Donald Trump took the ritual boasting about his own political performance to a new level Saturday, joking that there is nothing he could do that his supporters would not forgive.
"Everybody says my people are so loyal. I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn't lose any voters," Trump told about 1,600 people at Dordt College here during a rally. "That's how loyal they are."
Trump, who has been battling Ted Cruz for the support of Iowa's crucial evangelical Christian voters, spoke at the school affiliated with the Christian Reformed Church, which says on its web site that it is a "biblical Christ-centered" institution.
