And the Republican Winner is?

Michele Marie Bachmann (pronounced /ˈbɑːkmən/;[3] née Amble; born April 6, 1956)[4] - - She graduated from Anoka High School in 1974 and, after graduation, spent time working on kibbutz Be'eri in Israel.[13] In 1978, she graduated from Winona State University with a B.A.[1] In 1979, Bachmann was a member of the first class of the O. W. Coburn School of Law, then a part of Oral Roberts University (ORU).[12] 

Newton Leroy "NewtGingrich (play /ˈnt ˈɡɪŋɡrɪ/; born Newton Leroy McPherson; June 17, 1943)  - - Celebrity Leaders is a booking agency that handled Gingrich's speaking engagements, as well as those other clients such as former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.[89] Kathy Lubbers, the President and CEO of the agency,[100] who is Gingrich's daughter, owns the agency. Gingrich has shares in the agency, and was paid more than $70,000 by it in 2010. [101]

Richard John "RickSantorum (born May 10, 1958)  - - During his time at the law firm Kirkpatrick & Lockhart, he represented the World Wrestling Federation, arguing that professional wrestling should be exempt from federal anabolic steroid regulations because it was not a sport.[12] Santorum was mired in controversy over his residence in Virginia, where he and his family stay while the Senate was in session. He admitted that he spent only "maybe a month a year, something like that" at his Pennsylvania residence,[22] which critics argued was hypocritical because Santorum himself had denounced, and defeated, Rep. Doug Walgren-PA for living away from his House district.[23] Santorum faced damaging stories that he enrolled five of his children in an online "cyber school" in Pennsylvania, for which the Penn Hillsschool district was billed $73,000, despite the fact that all the children lived in Virginia.[24]
