Rep. Steve King: Why I'm a Fredhead

The eleventh-hour resurgence of Fredmania continues. Even the Hammer seems swept up in its tide, which may be a firing offense at Townhall at this point. How’s he doing? The good news is, his goal of finishing no worse than third in Iowa is well within reach. The bad news: Third place increasingly looks to be a single-digit distinction, somewhere in the vicinity of 25 points behind Mitt. As for South Carolina, Huckabee’s the clear leader but it’s a jumble after that. Some polls have Fred in second; one, ominously, has him in fourth, behind even Giuliani. Exit question: Given that he’s almost certain to finish behind Huck and Mitt in Iowa, how does he lap them in momentum to somehow steal a win in SC?
