DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is shrugging off reports that the vote count from Iowa's caucuses might be wrong, saying the errors appear not to change the fact that he and Mitt Romney were nearly tied.

Santorum tells Fox News that a party official says the two cases in which errors were reported in the count from Tuesday night nearly cancel each other out.

A Ron Paul supporter told Des Moines TV station KCCI that the posted count from his precinct in Appanoose County gave Romney more votes than he actually received.

The GOP chairman in Iowa, Matt Strawn, says in a statement that state party officials don't have any reason to believe the final results from Appanoose County will change the outcome of Tuesday's vote.
