Onward To New Hampshire
The winner of the caucuses- Mitt Romney, who defeated Rick Santorum by eight votes- wasted no time to get to his next state of contention.
“I think landslides are terrific,” he told reporters on the flight from Des Moines to Manchester Wednesday morning according to The New York Times. “I just didn’t see that in last night’s figures.”
But with a new endorsement, he hopes that may change.
In a video on The Washington Post, John McCain said he supports Romney as the Republican nominee for president and that "New Hampshire is the state that will catapult [Romney] on to victory."
Rick Santorum's surprising come-from-behind, second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses garnered comparisons to "Rocky Balboa" Wednesday. But as the race shifts to New Hampshire, competing with Romney financially may be the the biggest hurdle for him, reported The Associated Press.
Some of [Romney's] competitors — most notably Santorum — have given virtually no thought to contests beyond South Carolina's Jan. 21 primary. Santorum struggled to pay for campaign transportation in recent days, never mind television advertising in states beyond New Hampshire.
He's spending just $16,000 to air a television ad on New Hampshire cable stations this week. Romney is spending $264,000 on television advertising in New Hampshire, $260,000 in South Carolina and $609,000 in Florida, according to figures obtained by The Associated Press.
