AMES, IOWA - Minnesota rivals Tim Pawlenty and Michele Bachmann sparred bitterly last night during an eight-candidate Republican debate, seeking to break out of the GOP presidential pack ahead of an Iowa test vote with huge consequences. Each seeks to become the main challenger to Republican front-runner Mitt Romney. Their efforts were newly complicated by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who stole some of the spotlight from afar by making it known hours before the debate that he was running for the GOP nomination.

LOS ANGELES - Jon Huntsman Jr., far behind in the race for the GOP presidential nomination, outlined his foreign policy Monday, trying to steer a course less hawkish than the party's leader, Mitt Romney, but still forceful enough to attract Republican support. The former U.S. ambassador to China, Huntsman was also critical of President Obama, his former boss, saying the president's foreign policy lacked leadership. "The world needs American leadership now more than ever.

MANCHESTER, N.H. - Mitt Romney eagerly pocketed an endorsement yesterday from two-time New Hampshire primary winner John McCain and bid to convert a single-digit victory in Iowa into a Republican presidential-campaign juggernaut. Unimpressed, Newt Gingrich ridiculed the former Massachusetts governor as a liberal turned moderate now masquerading as a conservative. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum sought to rally conservatives to his side after coming achingly close to victory in the Iowa caucuses.

WASHINGTON - Only three Republican presidential candidates are worth any money - campaign money, that is. Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, and Ron Paul have banked millions. But the other GOP candidates are struggling or broke, putting their candidacies in question four months before the first nominating contests. Ahead of a critical fund-raising deadline Friday, all the contenders are furiously courting donors. It's a last-minute attempt to pick up cash before they file a three-month summary that will measure one aspect of their campaigns' financial strength.

BARTLETT, Tenn. - Herman Cain, the new Republican frontrunner in at least one recent 2012 presidential poll, swatted away criticism of his tax plan Friday and accused critics of attacking him because he is suddenly at the head of the pack. "Can y'all see that big bull's-eye on my back?" asked Cain, turning to show the crowd an imaginary target. Cain spoke in a park outside Memphis, his birthplace, at the first stop of a bus tour through Tennessee. The state seldom draws candidates this early in a presidential campaign because its primary is not held until March.

Huntsman to skip debate from Iowa WASHINGTON - Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is planning to hold a town-hall-style meeting in New Hampshire next Saturday while his rivals participate in a debate in Iowa that ABC is to televise nationally. Huntsman said Friday that he would meet with voters that day in New Hampshire, a state central to his political strategy. He has written off Iowa and spent neither time nor money there. As a result, he was unlikely to meet the qualifying threshold in Iowa of 5 percent in a poll of state caucusgoers or in a national poll.

CONCORD, N.H. - GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich pummeled front-running rival Mitt Romney as "a moderate Massachusetts Republican to the left of the vast majority" of their party, displaying a tough new tone in New Hampshire after a disappointing performance in Iowa's caucuses. Gingrich launched a blistering attack on Romney in what is essentially the home turf of the former Massachusetts governor, who owns a house here. The former House speaker said Romney had run a Senate race "to the left" of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy and had transformed into a moderate to run for governor.

Jon M. Huntsman Sr., the billionaire chemical-industry magnate who wrote in his 2014 memoir, "I desire to leave this world as I entered it - barefoot and broke," is this year's recipient of the Franklin Institute's Bower Award for business leadership. The institute on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway is known for its prestigious science prizes. Each year, though, the institute also recognizes a national business leader who transformed a company or industry, and was a generous philanthropist.

With the presidential election over, the United States can finally take a breather from campaign politics. But an uncomfortable question lingers: How can the world's most powerful country and oldest continuous democracy exhibit political discourse more reminiscent of a failed African state? Maybe that's an overly harsh assessment of Africa's nascent democracies. If you think I exaggerate, you have not been paying close attention. The pandering to extremists, rejection of science, outright lies, and evasion of real issues that characterized the election cycle set a new low for democratic politics.

Heidi Klum has confirmed it to People. So it must be true, alas. She and Seal will divorce after almost seven years of bledded wiss. A statement from the couple says, sadly, that "we have grown apart. " That confirms TMZ reports over the weekend. She's been out of the house a lot, here and in Germany, doing her TV thing, and he's been out a lot, touring behind his CD Soul 2 - he was to tape Ellen DeGeneres ' show on Monday. Gosh, those two used to renew their vows every year at a special party.

Foster Friess, onetime Chadds Ford resident and current Wyoming billionaire, is not shy about why he's backing Rick Santorum's presidential bid. "The man starts his day with 50 push-ups," Friess said of the former Pennsylvania senator. "That's the type of energy the Republican party needs. " But compare Friess, 71, to other big-money moguls whose contributions have made headlines in this year's GOP race, and the retired mutual fund investor demurs. "I'm the underdog millionaire in that bunch," he said this week in an interview.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - With just days to go before a primary that could all but decide the Republican presidential nomination, a shrunken field of five candidates battled in a debate Monday night, with opponents trying to pull front-runner Mitt Romney back to Earth. The former Massachusetts governor - who won the first two nominating contests, in Iowa and New Hampshire, and leads in the polls here - faced intense scrutiny in the first of two debates this week before South Carolina holds its primary Saturday.

That a nonideologue would pose the strongest challenge to President Obama has just been reinforced. First, there was an August survey by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News, in which 40 percent of respondents identified their approach to issues as "moderate. " Last month, a USA Today analysis of voter-registration figures detailed how more than 2.5 million voters had left the Democratic and Republican Parties since the 2008 election. Specifically, Democrats are in decline in 25 of the 28 states that register voters by party, and Republicans declined in 21 states.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The Florida presidential primary is on, with voting well under way - even though Florida doesn't hold its GOP nominating contest until Jan. 31. And both Mitt Romney, coming off back-to-back victories in Iowa and New Hampshire, and Texas Rep. Ron Paul are aggressively reaching out to voters who have requested ballots. None of their competitors has been nearly as active even though the victor in Florida would get a huge boost of momentum and all of the state's 50 delegates to the national nominating convention.

MANCHESTER, N.H. - Mitt Romney won the first primary in the nation here Tuesday after weathering scathing attacks from rivals in the final days of campaigning, solidifying his claim to the Republican presidential nomination. Libertarian Texas Rep. Ron Paul finished a strong second, and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman ran third, coming up short after staking his campaign on New Hampshire and its independent-minded voters. The returns, combined with Romney's narrow win in Iowa's caucuses last week, made the former Massachusetts governor the first Republican candidate to win the first two voting states in a contested race since incumbent President Gerald R. Ford did it in 1976.

HAMPSTEAD, N.H. - Jon Huntsman, former governor of Utah, stood on the counter so the 250 people crammed into the BeanTowne Coffee House on Sunday afternoon could see him - a slender figure in a brown leather bomber jacket, flannel shirt, and jeans whose moment in the Republican presidential spotlight seemed to have arrived. On Tuesday, the fate of Huntsman's rogue campaign could depend on the strength of his showing in New Hampshire's primary. He bet it all, skipping Iowa and spending most of his time in this state, which figured to be more receptive to his moderate views.
