Iowa Republicans Place Rice as 2008 Contender

State secretary Condoleezza Rice is the top presidential hopeful for Republican Party supporters in the Hawkeye State, according to a poll by Victory Enterprises. 30.3 per cent of respondents say they would vote for Rice in the state’s GOP caucuses.

Arizona senator John McCain is second with 16 per cent, followed by former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani with 15.3 per cent, and former House of Representatives speaker and Georgia congressman Newt Gingrich with 7.5 per cent.

Support is lower for Tennessee senator Bill Frist, Nebraska senator Chuck Hagel, New York governor George Pataki, Kansas senator Sam Brownback, Virginia senator George Allen and Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

In a separate list without Rice, Giuliani and McCain are tied for first place.

I'll give better than even money that Condi is on the ticket as #1 or 2.
