The Iowa caucuses will be held January 3, 2012.


Romney Endorsed by Iowa Sioux City Journal -
a plus for the Romney campaign in a state where he has not campaigned. You can read their endorsement here.

Gingrich's Turn in The Hot Seat - in last night's Mike Huckabee's GOP presidential forum held in New York. He took shots from fellow candidates on issues ranging from health care, Cap and Trade, and even his appearing with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calf.) in an ad about global warming. Fox News has more here.
