On WHO radio Thursday afternoon, Hawkeye State GOP chair Matt Strawn reverses earlier split decision and declares the Pennsylvanian the outright winner.
Strawn: “Certified results show Rick Santorum leading or won by 34 votes.”
Pennsylvanian’s spox Gidley: “We’ve had two early state contests with two winners – and the narrative that Governor Romney and the media have been touting of ‘inevitability’ has been destroyed.”
Romney reax: “The results from Iowa caucus night revealed a virtual tie. I would like to thank the Iowa Republican Party for their careful attention to the caucus process, and we once again recognize Rick Santorum for his strong performance in the state.”
