After months of campaigning, it's finally caucus day in Iowa. Polls still show a fluid race, with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Texas Rep. Ron Paul and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum heading the pack.
On the final full day of campaigning before the Iowa caucuses, former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney appeared at a series of rallies Monday. His rallies grew in size and enthusiasm over the course of the day. Romney holds a slim lead over Texas Congressman Ron Paul and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.
The voting in the Iowa GOP caucuses begins Tuesday night. On the last day before the caucuses, Republican presidential candidates campaigned across the state Monday. Their goal was the same — motivating supporters to leave their homes on a cold evening, go to their precinct meeting places and vote.
