Bachmann took 4,823 votes, narrowly escaped a major upset at the hands of Texas Rep. Ron Paul who won 4,671 votes. Former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty placed third with 2,293, a showing that is likely to raise questions about his ability to continue in the contest. The order of finish beyond the top three went as follows: former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (1,567), businessman Herman Cain (1,456), Texas Gov. Rick Perry (718), former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney (567), former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (385), former Utah governor Jon Huntsman (69) and Michigan Rep. Thad McCotter (35). Perry, Romney, Gingrich and Huntsman did not actively campaign at Ames.
