--> In related news: A new report shows Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum wound up 34 votes ahead of Mitt Romney in the Iowa caucuses.

Iowa's Des Moines Register newspaper reported today that while Santorum held the 34-vote advantage, results from eight precincts were missing and will never be recovered and certified, and there are "too many holes" in the certified totals to know the victor for certain.

Romney was thought to have won the January 3 caucuses by eight votes, the closest-ever margin of victory in a Republican presidential contest.

Certified results of the caucuses are set to be formally released later this morning.
