(Des Moines) State Republican Party leaders say the results of the January 3 Iowa Republican Caucuses should be certified by the end of the week.
Officials say counties have until the close of business tommorrow (Wednesday) to get official paperwork to the Iowa Republican party Headquarters in Des Moines.
Chairman Matt Strawn said paperwork from 95-counties has arrived. The other four counties' vote totals are on the way. Strawn expects the certification process to wrap up by Friday.
Mitt Romney edged out an eight-vote victory over Rick Santorum in the caucuses. Then, reports that the vote count might be wrong started surfacing.
Iowa GOP Executive Director Chad Olsen said party officials have discovered a few typos; some gave Santorum more votes, while some gave Romney more votes.
