In final days of Iowa campaign, Romney sensing opening for a caucus win
CLINTON, Iowa (AP) ' Mitt Romney has stepped into the center of a perfect storm in Iowa. And he's going all in.
He's sensing an opening to win next Tuesday's caucuses and looking to take advantage of it.
Romney is campaigning hard in the eastern region of the state, where he performed well in his failed 2008 race. He launched a bus tour and has a new crush of advertising intended to bolster his closing argument that he's the most electable candidate against President Barack Obama.
It's thanks to a combination of luck and planning that Romney now finds himself in strong contention for an Iowa caucus victory that would provide a boost heading into the next contest, in New Hampshire, where the former Massachusetts governor's standing is strong.
