The day of the 2012 Iowa Caucuses is finally here.
After what feels like years since this crop of Republicans started campaigning, the nation will finally get its first official look at who might receive the GOP nomination for President. With less than a year until election day, it's anyone's game, with Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum all currently neck and neck.
Considering how close this race really is, it's no surprise that each candidate did their fair share of pandering to the state of Iowa, whose early elections are usually considered to indicate who will win the nomination.
Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum may be the biggest courters of the Hawkeye State, but as you'll see in the supercut above, nearly all the candidates (and even some debate moderators) spent a good amount of time whispering sweet nothings in the ear of Iowa.
