Iowa Congressman Steve King: Ron Paul Will Win Straw Poll If Turnout Is Low

King is a close ally of Michele Bachmann, so one might view his comments as an attempt to lower expectations for the Minnesota congresswoman.
King hasn't endorsed Bachmann just yet and insisted he's still weighing his options. "This is more important than friendship," he said. But he added that he's "not leaning away from her at all." King pointed out that he's also very good friends with Tom Tancredo but didn't endorse him in 2008 (he backed Fred Thompson).
