After steering clear of the Hawkeye State for months, Mitt Romney is ramping up his Iowa campaign with less than six weeks until the nation's first presidential caucuses.

Romney spent Thanksgiving Eve in Iowa, receiving the endorsement of a key senator from next door South Dakota, John Thune.

They both sat down for an interview with Fox News' Chief Political Correspondent Carl Cameron.

Romney talks about why he still has a chance in Iowa and Thune discusses why he decided to back the former Massachusetts governor.

Watch some of what Romney and Thune had to say, after the jump.
