Twisting the knife, Trump said Wednesday he will hold a "special event" to benefit veterans groups at the same time as the debate, and in the same city.Trump has a genuine battle on his hands in Iowa with ultra-conservative Senator Ted Cruz, his nearest GOP rival, trailing by about five percentage points in the RealClearPolitics average of recent Iowa polls.According to Cruz, the race is dead even.A new CNN/ORC poll of Republican voters has Trump at 41 percent to 19 percent for Cruz, with more than two-thirds of Republicans saying they believe the billionaire will be the party's presidential candidate.Cruz warned evangelical pastors in Iowa that if Trump manages to win there and then in New Hampshire, he could prove "unstoppable".With Trump absent, Cruz will be center stage Thursday with six other Republicans in Des Moines, totally changing the debate dynamics.With Trump gone, the other candidates will likely focus their fire on Cruz.
