Iowa GOP names Rick Santorum the winner

Posted:

DES MOINES, Iowa (WKOW)—Rick Santorum was declared the winner of the Iowa caucuses by the Iowa Republican Party.

GOP State Chairman Matt Strawn and the party's State Central Committee issued a statement to help clarify conflicting reports from earlier this week.  The statement concludes that the former Pennsylvania senator won.

The committee said Santorum was 34 votes ahead of Mitt Romney on Wednesday, but the state GOP chief said a winner could not be declared because eight precincts certified results were not turned in.
