Santorum's Second Place a Victory
Rick Santorum gave a nice victory speech last night - a few hours before the final tally came in at around 2:15am, showing that Mitt Romney won in Iowa by 8 votes. But for Santorum, being in a close race was already a victory.
The crowd was yelling, and Santorum's daughters raised their joined hands in a show of victory, but the voters still didn't know whether he had won.
Santorum began his speech with a two words: "Game on."
He thanked the people of Iowa for being bold and leading.
"You have taken the first step to taking back this country," Santorum said.
