Romney won't participate in Iowa test vote

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will not participate in a key test of strength in the early voting state of Iowa in August, his campaign said on Thursday.

"Our campaign has made the decision not to participate in any straw polls, whether it's in Florida, Iowa, Michigan or someplace else," said Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades.
