Roemer Recount in Iowa?


Amid all the Santorum and Newt-ered quotes, it's easy to forget Buddy Roemer is running for president. In this week's Iowa caucuses, the ex La. gov even got some votes. But now there's question about just how many. Even though Rick Santorum doesn't care, New York Times human political calculator Nate Silver has been looking into potential problems with the Iowa vote tally that would demand a recount if it were a real election and not a strange and antiquated caucus. Turns out, a precinct may have bemiscounted, giving Roemer six less votes than the 31 votes he got credit for in the initial tally. Every vote counts, Buddy!


Jindal Starts 2012 in Iowa


It's a New Year, and a new campaign train for Bobby Jindal. With his inauguration set to be upstaged by football next Monday, the gov is starting the New Year off in a familiar place: out of the state. Apparently not bothered by the frigid temps or the Texas governor's stump session a few dozen debates ago, Jindal is in Iowa taking to his own stump for his chosen presidential candidate of the moment, Rick Perry. With it being too cold to roll up his sleeves, what will our governor use to get people out to the caucuses?
