Santorum Vows ‘Game On’

Eight was enough for Mitt Romney, who squeaked by with a razor-thin lead over Rick Santorum in Tuesday night's Iowa caucuses. But Santorum, lifted by his strong showing, vowed to continue on to New Hampshire. “Game on,” the ex-senator declared. “Thank you so much, Iowa, for standing up and not compromising, by standing up and being bold,” he told his fans Tuesday night. Iowa's secretary of state, a Santorum backer, called it a “Cinderella story.” But does Santorum have the cash and the organization to compete in the Granite State, Mitt Romney's backyard?
