Hillary Clinton joined in the cholesterol-fueled fun at the Iowa State Fair Saturday, eating a pork chop on a stick and sipping some lemonade. The fair has long been a required stop for presidential hopefuls who want to connect with middle America and win votes in the important swing state.

Not all of the candidates were interested in presenting a down-home American image, however. Donald Trump arrived at the event via a private helicopter with his family. Check out a video from inside Trump's helicopter here.

More than a million people are expected to attend the fair this year. The event has been happening for more than 100 years, and beyond being a magnet for White House hopefuls is known for the classic fair staples, such as games and rides, as well as Iowa's signature butter statue in the shape of a cow. Newcomers to the 200 food stands included the "Ultimate Bacon Brisket Bomb" and apple pie on-a-stick.

Republican hopeful Jeb Bush broke his paleo diet, which allows for consumption of only protein and raw vegetables, to indulge in a fried Snickers bar while fielding questions about the Iraq War. "The only way to be on the diet is to cheat," Bush told one reporter.

Fellow Republicans Gov. Scott Walker and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz also made appearances at the state fair, hoping to galvanize support from the large conservative and evangelical population in the state. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson was also present and is expected to speak at the fair.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, Ind.-Vt., spoke on the main stage, criticizing the hypocrisy of Republican rhetoric concerning family values. The senator, a self-proclaimed socialist who is running as a Democrat, has been catching up to Clinton in the polls recently in Iowa and drawing large crowds to speeches across the country.
