GOP presidential hopefuls looking ahead to New Hampshire

Round 2 of the Republican race for the White House is less than a week away, and the candidates are wasting no time mapping out

WHITE PLAINS - Round 2 of the Republican race for the White House is less than a week away, and the candidates are wasting no time mapping out their game plans for next Tuesday's primary in New Hampshire and the one after that in South Carolina.

While Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.) had dropped out of the race after coming in last in the Iowa caucuses Tuesday, Gov. Rick Perry (R-Texas) has decided to press on despite a disappointing fifth-place finish.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is hoping to win the next battle in New Hampshire by a larger margin than the eight votes over former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum that gave him victory in Iowa.

Romney picked up a key endorsement yesterday from the 2008 presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), and most recent polls show him far ahead of the competition in the Granite State.

However, campaign cash has been pouring in for Santorum since his second-place finish in Iowa, and his supporters believe he has a chance to pull off a huge upset in the coming primary.
