Republican presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy performed rap legend Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” in front of an enthusiastic crowd in Iowa on Saturday.
Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds of Iowa asked Ramaswamy during her Fairside Chat series about his approach to working with young people.
Ramaswamy told her that he was encouraged to see so many young people attending the event and that one of his favorite songs was from Eminem, before later performing an impromptu concert.

Reynolds said with a laugh that she would have to look up the song and that Ramaswamy was clearly in touch with his generation. The GOP presidential candidate cracked a joke beforehand that many people considered him too young at 37 to be president of the United States, and that he was glad to have turned 38 this month.
Connecting with young people is one of the most important parts of his campaign, Ramaswamy said. The presidential candidate also explained to Reynolds that he believed in the young people of this country, but that they needed to learn about civics in the same way that immigrants “like my parents did.”
The RealClearPolitics average indicated that Ramaswamy has 6.1% support in the 2024 primary, according to polls conducted between July 12 and August 7.
