WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Four Republican candidates speaking with voters in Waterloo Saturday.
 KWWL's Jessica Hartman caught up with the GOP candidates to discuss the issues.

The new leader in the polls, Dr. Ben Carson taking a break from campaigning for his book tour, but he says he is still listening to Iowa voters.
"Main thing I've been hearing from Iowans, is don't back down. Stand up for what you believe in," said Dr. Ben Carson.
But he didn't clarify what he is stand up for when it comes to Iowans.
Across town, Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Mike Huckabee and Governor Bobby Jindal, answering voters' questions at the Candidate Honest Assessment Summit.
 Both Cruz and Jindal say Iowa voters are asking for change.
  "Iowa voters are facing the same challenges that men and woman across this country are, which is what we are doing isn't working," said Senator Ted Cruz. 'We are trapped in economic stagnation, lowest percentage of American's working in any year since 1977. Wages have stagnated for 20 years. Working men and woman have been hammer here in Iowa."
  "Voters are so frustrated, they see the idea of America slipping away," said Governor Bobby Jindal. "They hear Republican leaders say one thing and then do an other when they get elected. Whether its Planned Parenthood, whether its growning dependence on government, whether its a foreign policy or America won't stand with Israel, people are frustrated."
   Mike Huckabee didn't give a specific answer to what Iowa voters were asking for but says because he has been on the ground here in Iowa, he knows Iowan voters.
"Iowa voters, they want to look at you, square you off in the eye, and they want to ask you hard questions. They don't want to let you get away with some pat political answer," said Governor Mike Huckabee.
   At the summit -- the candidates answer questions ranging from their stance on abortion to how they would handle ISIS.
