DES MOINES - Donald Trump shunned Thursday night's debate of the Republican presidential candidates hosted by Fox News and instead filled an auditorium a few miles down the road, trying to prove his widespread support only days before Iowa kicks off the nominating voting process.

Trump, with just one day's notice on a weeknight, was able to fill to capacity a hall that holds 700.

He was also able to garner a tremendous amount of attention without having to share much of the spotlight. Cable news \networks CNN and MSNBC provided extensive coverage of Trump's event.
