Santorum: Romney and Paul 'coordinate' against me

Rick Santorum on Saturday charged Mitt Romney and Ron Paul with “coordinating” to block his momentum in the race for the GOP presidential nomination.


As Super Tuesday looms, Republican primary heads into potentially decisive phase

The battle for the Republican presidential nomination heads into a potentially decisive phase over the next two weeks with contests in 13 states that could finally answer some of the questions that have defined the race.


Romney takes Maine caucuses from Paul

Reversing his embarrassing string of setbacks earlier this week when he lost Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri to Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney eked out a narrow win in the straw poll tied to Maine's multiday caucuses Saturday, defeating Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who was the only other candidate to actively campaign in Maine.


In South Carolina debate, focus is on tactics in GOP race

South Carolina Debate

Mitt Romney came under renewed assault Monday night for his business record and tactics, but in a turnabout, his rivals found themselves forced to defend their criticism and the increasingly harsh tone of the Republican presidential race.


New Hampshire GOP debate(s): Winners and losers

New Hampshire Debate

In the past twelve hours the six men running for the Republican presidential nomination have debated not once but twice. We live-blogged both debates — the Saturday night set-to sponsored by ABC/WMUR and the “Meet the Press” debate this morning. Below is our combined winners and losers from the two debates. Agree or disagree? That is your right; this country is all about liberty. (Ron Paul homage!) The comments section is open for business.

Senh: Looks like Mitt Romney's not getting pushed out of the spotlight. His rivals had two chances to attack him, and they came out kinda weak. I like how everyone except Rick Perry could answer correctly what they would be doing on a Saturday night if they weren't debating.


Iowa caucuses ending in virtual tie between Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum

Iowa Caucuses

In the closest finish in the history of the Iowa caucuses, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum were locked in a virtual dead heat in the first battle for the Republican presidential nomination... Ron Paul, nearly doubling his Iowa vote from 2008, was a close third.

Senh: Edit: Looks like Mitt Romney won by a narrrow margin. Rick Santorum. Where were you hiding all this time. This is complete shocker. Ron Paul is respectable in his third place finish. He and Santorum had the least amount of media coverage, and yet they placed so high in the results.


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.


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.


Iowa up for grabs 2 months before GOP caucuses

Iowa up for grabs 2 months before GOP caucuses

Sensing an opening, Romney is stepping up his Iowa campaign and talking about winning the state after months of taking a more low-key approach. He probably will return to Iowa in November and hold a conference call with thousands of Iowa GOP caucus-goers.
