Which lede paragraph will we read sometime late tonight

Quibble if you wish with any one or two words, but you certainly know what I'm getting at:

OPTION A:
Trailing for months in the polls and in fundraising, former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum rallied to win the Iowa Caucuses and to define himself as the conservative choice for the Republican presidential nomination.

OPTION B:
Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney won the Iowa Caucuses, holding off two political rivals and casting himself as the top choice to be the Republican presidential nominee.

OPTION C:
Texas Rep. Ron Paul, using a populist message at odds with the GOP establishment, has won the Iowa Caucuses and perhaps moved closer to an independent run for president.
