Santorum's Last Stand in State of Fence-Sitters

+

GOP Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum meets with supporters at the Daily Grind coffee shop in Sioux City, Iowa. (Ralf-Finn Hestoft)

ALTOONA, Iowa -- Bullhorn in hand, Rick Santorum made his final pitch. It was his 380th or so event in the state that will launch the Republican nominating process.

"Lead and be bold,'' he urged his audience, his words echoing back at him from the televisions in the Pizza Ranch restaurant tuned to C-SPAN. "If you do those two things, you will have done your jobs as Iowans.''


Even on the eve of Tuesday's caucus, many voters had not yet made up their minds. Asked when they would finally settle on a candidate, they say without apology: "Caucus night.'' And not a minute before, after one of the most unpredictable GOP primaries in decades, will roughly 100,000 Iowans end the suspense of how the nominating process willl unfold.
