    FILE - In this Nov. 30, 2011, file photo Republican presidential candidate, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, gets a standing ovation during a campaign speech to the New Hampshire legislature at the Statehouse in Concord, N.H. After sitting out the Iowa caucuses and investing all his hopes in this state, Huntsman is proud to announce that he's no longer ?the margin-of-error candidate?, in New Hampshire, at least. But he'll need to do far better than that for his campaign to soldier on after Tuesday's leadoff primary. (AP Photo/Jim Cole, File)

    In this Jan. 3, 2012, photo, Republican presidential candidate Texas Gov. Rick Perry pauses on caucus night in West Des Moines, Iowa. Perry did something in Iowa he?s never done in three decades of public life: He lost. Those who have known Perry for years expect him to take his fifth-place finish in Tuesday?s Iowa caucuses in stride, even as his chances of winning the presidential nomination shrink.

    FILE - In this Jan. 3, 2008 file photo, Republican presidential hopeful former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, left, is joined by his wife Janet as he addresses a victory party in Des Moines, Iowa, after being declared the winner of the Iowa Caucus. Sen. John McCain, who won the party nomination, ended up fourth. The Iowa caucuses draw outsized attention from politicians and the news media because they are first and can put a symbolic political wind behind the sails of the top finishers, making them more attractive not only to voters but also to donors who finance campaigns.

    FILE - In this Dec. 5, 2011 file photo, Republican presidential candidate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich speaks in New York. Mitt Romney faces some serious hurdles in trying to slow Newt Gingrich's surge. Time is running short, with three weeks before the Iowa caucuses and just one before many voters tune out for the holiday season.
