Mitt Romney Wins New Hampshire Primary

Mitt Romney has won the New Hampshire primary, just one week after inching a victory over Rick Santorum in Iowa. The former governor of Massachusetts has enjoyed a blistering start to the competition to become the Republican candidate for President of the United States in 2012.

His campaign team, Romney for President, has reported funds of more than $56 million raised so far in the primary including $24 million raised in the fourth quarter. The campaign says that it has over $19 million cash on hand and that Mitt Romney has not made a personal loan or contribution. Romney’s platform for New Hampshire was a withering speech focused on the economic record of the Obama administration.

The full results of the New Hampshire primary are as follows:

  • Mitt Romney 97,532 votes 39.3% – 5 delegates
  • Ron Paul 56,848 votes 22.9% – 3 delegates
  • Jon Huntsman 41,945 votes 16.9% – 2 delegates
  • Newt Gingrich 23,411 votes 9.4%
  • Rick Santorum 23,362 votes 9.4%
  • Others 2,676 votes 1.1%
  • Rick Perry 1,713 votes 0.7%
  • Buddy Roemer 945 votes 0.4%
