After two weekend debates and intense campaigning following the Iowa Caucuses, citizens went to the polls to pick a GOP Presidential candidate. We take a look at the candidates’ reactions to the New Hampshire primary results.

Good Enough

On The Radar

For the last week, Mitt Romney has called himself "landslide Romney," repeating a joke from John McCain about his eight-vote victory in the Iowa caucuses. The title fits a little better now. He won the New Hampshire primary by a handy 13 points with 37 percent of the vote.

Paul's Foreign Policy Views Not So 'Dangerous'

On The Radar

Ron Paul’s opponents in the race for the Republican presidential nomination don’t mince words about his foreign policy views. Mitt Romney says Paul would endanger Israel and that he “thinks it’s OK for Iran to have a nuclear weapon.” Newt Gingrich describes Paul as “stunningly dangerous” and bluntly says he wouldn’t vote for the Texas congressman.

Ron Paul’s Surprising Appeal for Religious Conservatives (cont’d.)

On The Radar

In a post here on Monday, I noted the surprising number of religious conservatives I was running into at Ron Paul’s events in Iowa.
