Iowa poll gauges support for presidential retreads

(CNN) – A new survey asked Iowa voters about potential presidential candidates who’ve already run for the White House, and the results show some good news for Republicans Mike Huckabee and Paul Ryan.

But for Rick Santorum, who won the Iowa GOP caucuses in 2012 by a razor-thin margin, and Rick Perry, the results indicate Hawkeye State Republicans aren't quite as excited about the prospects of another presidential bid by the former Pennsylvania senator and the Texas governor. FULL POST

First on CNN: Santorum slams deal with Iran

(CNN) – Former Sen. Rick Santorum criticized the interim deal to slow Iran's nuclear program. And the 2012 Republican presidential candidate said the move by President Barack Obama was "an act of a desperate” chief executive hoping to change the political narrative.

"This deal also does nothing to dismantle Iran's nuclear program. It provides vital resources for a ruthless regime to continue to oppress its people, threaten its neighbors, support terrorism, stabilize its economy, and violate numerous U.N. resolutions pertaining to its nuclear program," Santorum said in a statement.

"The president of the United States should never meet with someone who's not the president of their country," Santorum said on CNN's "New Day," arguing that the Ayatollah is the person who leads Iran.
