Mitt Romney, 2012 Iowa Republican Caucus Victor
In last night’s 2012 Iowa Caucus Barack Obama was not opposed and received 98% of the Democratic caucus vote and in an extremely close Republican caucus vote, Mitt Romney defeated Rick Santorum by 8 votes. The Huffington Post reports 122,255 people voted in the Republican Caucus and there are over 2.2 million people eligible to vote in Iowa. It has been reported that prospective republican candidate Michele Bachmann will resign from the race and infamous “Riggerhead Nanch” (change the R and N but I’m not writing it), owner Rick Perry is “reassessing” his position in the race. The contenders for Republican Presidential nomination at this time appear to be Mitt Romney, pictured above, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul.
