Mitt Romney's Pre-Iowa Caucus Schedule Announced: All In On Iowa

Posted: Updated:

MASON CITY, Iowa -- It's official. Mitt Romney is all in in Iowa.

The Romney campaign announced the former Massachusetts governor's schedule through Tuesday, Jan. 3, when Iowans will caucus and decide who they want to be the GOP nominee for president.

As recently as last week, it was thought that Romney would spend most of the next several days in New Hampshire, where voters will head to the polls on Jan. 10.

But sensing an opportunity to go in for the kill and win Iowa, Romney will head to New Hampshire Friday night and come back to Iowa on Saturday afternoon for two events in the Hawkeye State, including a late afternoon rally in Sioux City -- on the state's far western border -- New Year's Eve.

He'll then hold two more events on Sunday in Atlantic and Council Bluffs, both in the western portion of the state. Then he will head back to eastern Iowa for four more events on Monday. It will be the most events he will have held in one day in Iowa this entire cycle.

Romney will conclude with two rallies in Des Moines on Tuesday, caucus day.
