R.D. Lampe with the Boone, Iowa police department confirms exclusively to Breitbart News that a bomb threat was called in to the Iowa Roast and Ride with a voice recorder. He later added that as that event was ending, a second bomb threat was called to authorities in Polk county.
Lampe says that when bomb threats are made, it’s usually difficult to track down the caller. He says a number can be traced, but it’s usually a throw-away phone.
The potential security breach prevented candidates getting to their tents and greeting voters for a time on Saturday. At least seven GOP candidates were at the event.
Two separate campaign officials had confirmed to Breitbart News candidates were held for security reasons due to a security breach.
A third campaign confirmed to Breitbart News that it was in fact a “bomb threat.”
Senator Ernst, an Iraq War veteran, organized the Iowa Roast and Ride event.
