Romney Waits On New Hampshire Voters

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Mitt Romney is waiting to see whether his months of campaigning will pay off in New Hampshire’s Republican presidential primary, which his team has always said is a must-win contest for him.

While his rivals plan visits to polling places all day Tuesday, Romney has no public events scheduled.

Romney told a raucous crowd at a Bedford rally Monday night, “You’re going to make a statement tomorrow.” The former governor of neighboring Massachusetts has led in polls in New Hampshire for months — recently by 20 percentage points or more. He’s been pushing for an overwhelming victory as he looks to South Carolina, where the GOP base was uncomfortable with him in 2008.

Romney is pushing to wrap up the nomination fight as quickly as possible.
