DES MOINES, Jan 29 : Republican White House hopefuls jostled for the limelight on Thursday in the absence of master showman Donald Trump, who snubbed the last debate before the party nomination votes begin and upstaged his rivals with a duelling event.
Trump gambled big when he announced he was boycotting the debate in Des Moines because of a feud with Fox News, plunging the presidential race into uncharted waters just days before Iowa votes on February 1.
Straight out of the gate, the seven debaters turned to "the elephant not in the room" as he was wryly described by Megyn Kelly -- the Fox anchor who Trump accuses of bias against him.
Top adversary Ted Cruz used Trump-like language to jokingly belittle himself and rivals -- and take a pot shot at the absentee himself.     ?AFP
