US Republicans vie for conservative vote

With Romney leading presidential race, rivals say he is poor standard-bearer for party’s conservative brand.

    The US Republican Party's presidential race is picking up pace as the first state primary in Iowa passes by.

    But his opponents are painting him as a poor standard-bearer for the party’s conservative brand.
