Santorum: Iowa ‘Not Yet Decided’

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said on Friday that the results of the GOP caucuses in Iowa have “not yet been decided” and that he could still be declared the winner in a contest in which Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney bested him by just eight votes.

At a campaign stop in Rock Hill, Santorum said, “Iowa has not yet been decided. The idea that Mitt Romney has won Iowa is still very much an open question that will be decided [in] two weeks as they go through the certification of those numbers, and those numbers are changing."

Santorum Attacks Former Pal Gingrich

ROCK HILL, S.C. – Newt Gingrich, who is breaking out of the pack as the conservative alternative to front-runner Mitt Romney in South Carolina, came under attack on Friday from an old friend and colleague in Congress: former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania.

Santorum had largely avoided political attacks against Gingrich, whom he once considered a political mentor. But on Friday, the gloves came off as Santorum took the former House speaker to task for being insufficiently conservative on climate change, free markets, and health care.
