UPDATE: Romney Takes Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa - Mitt Romney has officially edged out Rick Santorum to win Tuesday night's Iowa Caucus.

The Chairman of the Iowa Republican Party, Matt Strawn, announced Romney got 30,015 votes and Santorum received 30,007 votes out of a record turnout of 122,255.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul finished third, at 21 percent.

Now Candidates head off to New Hampshire, where Romney holds a healthy lead in the polls. Romney says his national campaign team and strong fundraising will set him apart from the pack.

DES MOINES, Iowa - Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum are running neck and neck in the Iowa caucuses, and Texas congressman Ron Paul has fallen too far behind to catch either of them.

With all but about 10 percent of the votes counted, Romney and Santorum are separated from each other by less than 100 votes.

Previous Coverage:

DES MOINES, Iowa - Early numbers from the Iowa caucuses show a tight three-way race between former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, Texas Rep. Ron Paul and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

The three rivals are separated by only a few dozen votes. That matches the findings of an entrance survey of early arrivers that suggested that Romney, Paul and Santorum were in the
top tier.

About a third of voters in the survey said they most wanted a candidate who could defeat President Barack Obama. Romney was the top choice of those participants. Among those favoring a true conservative, most preferred Paul. He also scored well with younger and first-time caucus-goers.

The survey was conducted by Edison Media Research for the AP and TV networks.
