ONE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE TO DROP OUT THIS MORNING, AND WHO REALLY WON IOWA?
New This Morning: Several media sources report Rick Perry will drop out of the Presidential campaign today. It could happen around 6 Hawaii time and we'll bring it to you live when it does. This development comes as a two week review of the Iowa caucus finds that Rick Santorum actually finished 34 votes ahead of Mitt Romney. However, according to the chair of the Iowa Republican Party, an "actual winner can't be determined because results from 8 of 1,774 precincts could not be located for certification. Santorum was quick to declare victory today and tell voters "the results show that he is the best-equipped candidate to emerge as a conservative alternative to Mr. Romney."
