The candidates will cross paths at a dinner in Iowa this weekend where they will try to court (ultural conservative's who haven't yet rallied behind a single contender. It's a prime setting for candidate's like Perry, Minnesota Ri*}). Micht'le Rac h ma n n, busi ne*ssm«m Herman ( ain and others looking to emerge as the alternative to Romney. Iowa conservatives have long vi(»wed Romney skeptically for his reversals on aiiortion rights and gay rights, anil they have vii'wed his Mormon faith wanly. Perry also will give an cHotiomic sfieec h on Tuesday in Soulh ( arolina. Romnc'y contends his busi ness ba( kground makes him the strongest R(‘publi-can in the fi(’ld alile to take on Obam.i on the ('cono-my, and Perry needs to counter th.it The I(‘xan will point to his stat«‘'s job growth during his tenure as governtjr, and, in a bid to win over fiscal conserva-tives, he plans to call for tax changes that would apply the same rate to all c i t i z e n s, r e g a r d I es so f income level. Previewing the propos al, Perry said Wedneway that jumpstarting the ^on-omy "starts with scrrapping the \ million words of the current tax code anif start-ing ovi'r with something much simf)lc‘r: a flat tax. I want to make the tax code so simple that even Timothy Geithner can file his taxes on time." It was a referent* to Obama's Treasury secretary. Behind th(' scenes, the (andidates with the most money —- P(*rry and Romney — and their allic*d groups are gearing up for the inevitable TV ad war. Ea( h cam[)aign is sitting on roughly $IS million and counting, and there are lc*ss than 75 days before th(> Iowa c auc uses.
