U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks in the Orpheum Theatre during a campaign event in Sioux CityBy Steve Holland and James Oliphant DES MOINES, Iowa/COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (Reuters) – Republicans Donald Trump and Ted Cruz battled on Sunday to persuade their supporters to turn out and tried to lower expectations on how well they will do in the first U.S. presidential nominating contest in Iowa on Monday.
