WASHINGTON, January 21, 2012–And now there are four: Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich are left standing, each fighting for the heart, and votes, of America’s moderate and conservative voter. If Newt Gingrich wins, which is being predicted, it creates a paradigm where the first three primaries of the election season are won by three different candiates - and the winner is far from assured.
A first for any primary.
The debate on Thursday night drew blood. First from moderator John King who recieved the full force of Newt’s ire, only to have Newt receive the first standing ovation of the night after taking Mr. King and the media to task.
