The candidates are on the ground, as their messages battle each other in an air war, the candidates are making their closing arguments in Iowa. "Don't do anything to any other country that we don't want them to do to us and that would solve a lot of our problems," says Ron Paul, (R) Presidential Candidate.
Ron Paul is the wild card, polling second, but with a well-organized army of supporters - which makes him a target. "Ron Paul would be dangerous as a President of the United States," said Michele Bachmann, (R) Presidential Candidate
"One of the people running for President thinks it's okay for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, I don't," said Mitt Romney, (R) Presidential Candidate.
Mitt Romney has a shot at winning Iowa - if he can convince enough voters he's conservative enough.
It's a battle for social conservatives who are split.
Rick Santorum is gaining ground, and rick Perry is trying to get it back.
