The 2015 Iowa Freedom Summit aired all day Saturday on C-SPAN and c-span.org, as a number of potential Republican 2016 presidential hopefuls and other party luminaries gathered in the state capital of Des Moines.
Representative Steve King (R-IA), one of the summit’s co-sponsors, delivered his opening remarks shortly after 10 a.m. ET, following the summit’s start.
He was followed by Iowa Governor Terry Branstad (R), who told attendees the event was the official kick-off of the 2016 presidential campaign in Iowa, which is slated to hold its caucuses in early February 2016. The governor later took questions from reporters on the 2016 field.
