Goodbye Iowa! The Candidates' Parting Words

Just like that, the candidates have left Iowa in the rear-view mirror. After last night’s caucuses, the front-runners are off to New Hampshire, but not before leaving their supporters in the Hawkeye State with some parting words. Here & Now plays a sampling of the candidates’ speeches.

On the Republican side, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz won the GOP caucuses with 28 percent of the vote. Donald Trump won 24 percent, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was just a single percentage point behind him.

On the Democratic side, the Iowa Democratic Party declared Hillary Clinton the winner, but her margin of victory over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was less than one percentage point.
