The Republican Presidential Hopefuls by the Numbers

by Karen Topakian

Today our some of our fellow Americans in Iowa will gather in their caucuses to select their Republican presidential candidate.

As they are doing so, I thought I would share some info about the 8 presidential hopefuls – the number of children they each have:

Mitt Romney – 5 sons

Herman Cain – 2, 1 son, 1 daughter

Ron Paul – 5, 3 sons, 2 daughters

Michele Bachmann – 5, 2 sons, 3 daughters*

Rick Perry – 2, 1 son, 1 daughter

Newt Gingrich – 2 daughters

Jon Huntsman – 7, 5 daughters**, 2 sons

Rick Santorum – 7, 3 daughters, 4 sons

That’s a total of 35 children. 18 sons, 17 daughters. Care to comment on their thoughts about family planning?

*They also helped raise 23 foster children all teenage girls

**Huntsman and his wife adopted two of their daughters. One from India and one from China.
