CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won
the New Hampshire primary Tuesday night, adding to a first-place
finish in last week's Iowa caucuses and establishing himself as the
man to beat for the Republican presidential nomination.
Texas Rep. Ron Paul led former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman for second
place, with Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum trailing.
Returns from the first 11 percent of the state's precincts showed Romney with 36 percent of the vote, followed by Paul with 25 percent and Huntsman with 17 percent.
Former House Speaker Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Sen. Santorum had 11 percent and 10 percent respectively.
Obama, running uncontested, cruised to victory as well winning the Democratic primary.
Far fewer voters participated in the Democratic primary than the
competitive GOP primary.
