The younger Paul, a U.S. senator from Kentucky, says his father is the only Republican who can reach across party lines.
With just hours to go before the influential Iowa caucuses, Republican presidential contender Ron Paul and his son, Rand, a U.S. senator from Kentucky, started a five-city blitz Monday morning in Des Moines and breezed through Cedar Falls this evening. Their aim was to shore up support and fend off suddenly competitive Rick Santorum and his quick ascension to the top tier of candidates. In Cedar Falls, about 200 people overfilled a room at the PIPAC Centre for Paul's quick speech before the candidate headed out the door to speed off to the day's final stop, in Mason City. Paul's fans are nothing if not fervent. One woman in the audience was overheard telling a friend, "It's just like seeing Jesus, only second in line. Jesus is first." The …

- Deb Belt
Saturday, December 31, 2011
The Des Moines Register's final Iowa Poll before Tuesday's Caucuses shows former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney leading the presidential candidate pack, but Ron Paul and a surging Rick Santorum are within striking distance. The poll, conducted Tuesday through Friday, shows support at 24 percent for Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts; 22 percent for Paul, a Texas congressman; and 15 percent for Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania. Most striking was Santorum's surge and the continuing crash of former U.S. Speaker Newt Gingrich. While the poll was taken over four days, when the last two days are considered separately, Santorum rises to second place, with 21 percent, pushing Paul to third, at 18 percent. Romney remains …

The Des Moines Register says Romney has the qualities of sobriety, wisdom and judgment.
The Des Moines Register, Iowa's largest newspaper, tonight gave its endorsement for the GOP presidential nomination to Mitt Romney, calling him "the most qualified Republican candidate competing in the Iowa caucuses." The newspaper rejected Newt Gingrich as "an undisciplined partisan who would alienate, not unite, if he reverts to mean-spirited attacks on display as House speaker." Of Ron Paul, who has been near the top of most Iowa polls with Gingrich and Romney, the endorsement said his "libertarian ideology would lead to economic chaos and isolationism, neither of which this nation can afford." Posted on the Register's website tonight and set for the newspaper's Sunday print editions, the endorsement is likely to find little favor among…

The newspaper joins ABC for an event that had already been scheduled for Dec. 10 in Des Moines.
The Des Moines Register, which has hosted presidential candidate debates since 1980, has canceled its Dec. 19 event. In an article published this morning, the newspaper gave no reason for canceling the debate, one of three that had been scheduled within a span of 10 days beginning on Dec. 10. Candidates and the Iowa Republican Party had been grumbling about the debate schedule, which was compacted after Iowa moved its caucuses from February to Jan. 3.

Prior to the Jan. 3 caucuses, the only other Iowa debate will be held Dec. …
