Republican Presidential Candidates:

Candidates in the January 3, 2012 Iowa Caucuses:

Mitt Romney--Romney is the presumed front-runner. Not expected to win the Iowa Caucus, but that may not impede him as he appears to be the strongest anti-Obama candidate. Ran for the Republican nomination in 2008.

Newt Gingrich--Former Speaker of the House. His candidacy has risen in the run-up to the Iowa Caucus, largely feeding off of the impending fall of Herman Cain. Many feel that his personal baggage, including a well-known affair and the manner in which he divorced his former wife, will hurt him with many social conservatives.

Ron Paul---May do well in libertarian-minded New Hampshire. Ran for the Republican nomination in 2008.

Herman Cain--Was the surprise front-runner for several weeks until accusations of sexual harassment and an alleged adulterous affair caused Herman Cain to suspend his campaign on Dec. 3, 2011.

Michelle Bachmann--Representative from Minnesota, Bachmann has firm conservative credentials, but miscues and gaffes have hurt her campaign. May still do well in the Iowa caucuses.

Jon Huntsman--Former Utah governor and U.S. Ambassador to China. Considered a real longshot, given his lack of strong conservative credentials.

Rick Santorum--Former Pennsylvania Senator, Santorum is a strong religious conservative, but has failed to make much headway in this campaign.
