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."

He didn’t suggest outright that he would win, just that the outcome was still in doubt. “I just throw that open to you,” he told the crowd. “This idea that this is a fait accompli, that Mitt Romney is going to be the nominee, or that Mitt Romney is on a roll, let me assure you ladies and gentleman, South Carolina has a lot to say about that."

 

After narrowly defeating Santorum in Iowa on Jan. 3, Romney went on to win the New Hampshire primary handily, firmly establishing himself as the front-runner for the GOP nomination heading into the Jan. 21 primary in South Carolina.
