Republican candidates make final pitches in Iowa

Iowa Caucuses: New Gingrich

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich, who led Iowa and national polls in November, said Monday he did not expect to win Tuesday's Iowa caucuses, but will declare victory because he has survived an onslaught of negative advertising.

Senh: Is it even fair that a campaign group supporting Mitt Romney can spend $3.5M in attack ads against Newt Gingrich, who don't have that kind of money to spend for a response ad? Romney is campaigning like he's already won the GOP nomination, attacking Barack Obama instead of his fellow GOP candidates.


Mitt Romney takes aim at Ron Paul over Iran

Mitt Romney swatted at Ron Paul on Wednesday, a shift for the candidate who has largely ignored the Texas congressman and a possible sign at the shifting nature of the race in the state that in less than a week holds the first presidential voting contest in the nation.

Senh: Ron Paul has came a long way. He was largely ignored until recently. Now even Romney's going after him.


Romney looks poised for Iowa victory, maybe even if he loses

Mitt Romney: Iowa

After a campaign effort that has defied convention and angered top Iowa Republicans, Mitt Romney is well-positioned to emerge as a big winner in Tuesday's presidential caucuses. The tightest GOP caucus contest in decades features Romney, Ron Paul and a fading Newt Gingrich in a virtual tie for the lead, making the final days of politicking unusually consequential. And another candidate, Rick Perry or Rick Santorum, could get hot at the end and knock one of the favorites out of the top three.


Ron Paul’s un-electability will be his undoing

The only danger about people like me and Ed saying Ron Paul can never win is that it fuels his anti-establishment cred. Paul has two bases of support: a libertarian base that likes Paul for his consistent purism on stripping government of all but extremely limited powers and a really angry base that is more about creating chaos than philosophy. This second group would like nothing more than to send a giant message of anger to the political establishment, and Paul is a good vehicle for that.


Ron Paul’s ‘Ground Game’ Gives Him an Edge

Ron Paul’s built-in networks of loyal backers from his 2008 presidential run have given him a decisive organizational advantage this election season... It was four years ago that Ross Witt, a soft-spoken electrical engineer at John Deere, overcame his natural discomfort with knocking on hundreds of his neighbors’ doors during dinnertime as a precinct coordinator for Ron Paul’s campaign.

Senh: Giving the neglected Ron Paul more media love.


Ron Paul gains ground, further stirring Republicans

Paul strength may help Romney in Iowa

Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney may have some help in Iowa: Ron Paul. The Texas congressman's allies and others say that he drains support from the rising Newt Gingrich, and, if that turns out to be the case during the Jan. 3 caucuses and Paul manages to triumph here, the theory is that Romney would benefit in the long-run.

Ron Paul doesn't rule out third-party bid

GOP presidential hopeful Ron Paul did not rule out a third-party bid for the White House, but said he's not inclined to do so if he doesn't win the Republican nomination. The Texas congressman, who is making his third run for the White House, made his comments Sunday on CNN's State of the Union program.

Senh: I'm sure the Republican Party wouldn't want him to do that. It'll weaken their party when they run again Barack Obama. Democrats would welcome it with open arms.
