First on CNN: Santorum endorses in key Republican Senate battle

(CNN) - Rick Santorum's taking sides in the free-for-all GOP Senate primary in Iowa.

The former senator from Pennsylvania and 2012 Republican presidential candidate – who's seriously considering another bid for the White House – Wednesday will endorse Sam Clovis. The conservative talk radio host backed Santorum's 2012 presidential campaign, which was fueled by a delayed victory over eventual GOP nominee Mitt Romney in the Iowa caucuses.

Biden courts Iowa leaders

Washington (CNN) - It's not so noteworthy for Vice President Joe Biden to stop by a social reception. But what was noteworthy about the one he attended Wednesday evening was its audience – full of Iowans.

Biden stopped by a party at a Washington hotel for a group of 195 Iowans from the Greater Des Moines Partnership – a group aimed at promoting economic development in Des Moines. The group of Iowans are on a three-day trip to the nation's capital to help spur job creation in Des Moines and lobby Congress.

Washington (CNN) – The first votes cast in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination would take place in February 2016, according to a proposal that cleared a major hurdle Friday at a Democratic National Committee meeting here in the nation’s capital.

The proposed nominating calendar would have the Iowa caucuses take place on February 1, New Hampshire primary on February 9, Nevada caucuses on February 20 and the South Carolina primary on February 27. All other states would have to wait until March 1 to hold a caucus or primary and be required to do so no later than June 14.

(CNN) - What do the three most recent public opinion polls of Iowa's 2016 Republican presidential caucus have in common?

All three surveys indicate there's no frontrunner in the very early hunt for the GOP presidential nomination in the state that votes first in the race for the White House. And former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee narrowly tops the list of potential candidates in each poll.

Paul Ryan to Iowa GOP: Give up 'infighting' for Lent

(CNN) - Rep. Paul Ryan called on the Republican Party to unify in a speech Friday, saying it should "give up the infighting" for Lent.

Addressing an Iowa crowd in the pivotal caucus state's GOP Lincoln Dinner, the potential 2016 presidential candidate said Iowa can do the country a favor in the 2014 midterm election "by delivering another Senate seat and by sending more conservatives to Congress."

2016 Iowa Poll: Clinton vs. TBA Republican

(CNN) - There's no frontrunner in the very early hunt for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination in the state that votes first in the race for the White House, according to a new survey.

A Suffolk University poll of Iowa voters also indicates what just about every other national and state survey has indicated, that Hillary Clinton would be the overwhelming frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, should the former secretary of state launch a second campaign for the White House.
