    Bachmann Wins U.S. Rep. Ron Paul came in second

    Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann emerged the winner in the widely-anticipated Ames Straw Poll in Iowa on Saturday.

    The conservative congresswoman came out on top in the event with 4,823 votes. U.S. Rep. Ron Paul came in second with 4,671 votes.

    Former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty secured 2,293 votes. Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum earned 1,657. Former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain locked-up 1456 votes. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, who did not actively campaign in the event, captured 567 votes. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who also did not aggressively look to secure support in the straw poll, got 385 votes. U.S. Rep Thad McCotter, a longshot contender, received 35 votes.

    This is a developing story... More information to come...

    We're following the latest developments to unfold in Iowa.
