Mitt Romney finally took the lead as the last votes were counted in Iowa. Romney beat Santorum by 30,015 to 30,007 -- winning by only eight votes!
Santorum has emerged as an ascending candidate and Romney is shown to be vulnerable.
Will this great showing for Santorum become a trend? In less than a week we'll find out. The New Hampshire primary is January 10. The even more important South Carolina primary is January 21.
I'm in for Rick Santorum. Michele Bachmann officially dropped out of the race today, and Rick Perry may do the same. Let's hope they throw their support to Santorum.
Update: Rick Perry has decided to stay in the race for the time being.
