He may not be everyone's warm and fuzzy but Mitt Romney is still king of the Gang if Eight....The group of GOP hopefuls debating in Iowa provided no breakthrough for the second and third tier candidates, with only Newt Gingrich delivering the rhetorical flair he is capable of.
Bachmann and Pawlenty were too enmeshed in each other, while other Morman in the race, Jon Huntsman, showed no flair...
That leaves the ninth man...Texas Governor Rick Perry....as the likely biggest challenge to Mr. Romney.
Since most of us don't know a lot about him, we will have to do some quick learning.
Next up for Mitt Romney is Rick Perry - Jonathan Martin and Ben Smith - POLITICO.com
