Bush and leading challenger John McCain have offered tax cuts which are too timid.While the “flat tax” was his main issue in 1996, this time around Forbes has pledged to work to end abortion — a direct appeal to conservative voters in Iowa.Forbes and Orrin Hatch are the only candidates campaigning here in today’s snow.

Democrats Al Gore and Bill Bradley both return to the state tomorrow.
