There were seven candidates vying for the Republican nominations in the Iowa Caucuses... They are Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry and Jon Huntsman...Well as it turns out, there may have been a typo in the early tallying of the Republican nomination votes...Although Romney has been reported as the winner, apparently Santorum may have actually won, if the Appanoose County caucus' reported count is the only one that may be wrong...Edward True was counting ballots at the Appanoose County caucus and scribbled the results on a piece of paper to later post on his Facebook page...When he checked his numbers against the ones reported by the Iowa Republican Caucus for Appanoose County, the numbers did not match up...True's total was 53, while 79 were being reported...The biggest discrepancy was in the number of votes they were reporting for Mitt Romney...According to True, Romney received only two votes, while 22 votes were reported somewhat officially...The certified vote count will happen within 14 days of the caucuses...So we should know who really won Iowa by January 17th...

Following the Iowa Caucuses, the top 3 contenders for the Republican nomination in order are Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul...Although Romney apparently won in Iowa (if the ballot count typo controversy gets swept under the rug),with the margin over Santorum that is so slim, 8 votes out of a total of 122k+ total uncertified votes cast, that it's a tough race to call at this point...We will have to wait until November to how it all pans out...
