    A record number of Republican voters took part in the 2016 Iowa caucuses, Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann told reporters.

    DES MOINES (Sputnik) — Iowa caucus voters expressed their support for the candidates of the two US major political parties in their bid to become party nominees and capture the US presidency.

    The Iowa caucuses marked the start of the 2016 US presidential nomination process.

     

    "I am very, very proud of my fellow citizens," Kaufmann stated on Monday night. "Record turnout, we are now over 180,000 people that participated in the Iowa caucuses."
