Twenty 2016 presidential candidates made the trek to this year's Iowa State Fair, and 18 had the guts to speak on the political soapbox. (Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were busy doing other things.)
In between grilling pork and riding the Ferris wheel, the candidates had some standout moments including one who faced questions from a celebrity and another who announced he would drink more if he is elected.
Watch some of the interesting moments below.
1. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) was unfazed by these protesters.
2. Actress Ellen Page grilled Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) over his position on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues.
3. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) defended his "anchor babies" comment.
4. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) took a break from talking about the Islamic State and talked about drinking instead.
5. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton slammed Jeb Bush on Iraq.
