Episode Summary

Wednesday, January 11, 2012
Mitt Romney won the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary with almost 40 percent of the vote, giving the former Massachusetts governor a sweep of the first two critical tests in the GOP nominating contest. He used his victory speech to alternatively attack his potential rival, President Obama, and outline his plans if elected, saying voters must choose "between two very different destinies." Meanwhile, Texas Rep. Ron Paul finished a strong second with 23 percent of the vote and told his supporters, "but we are nibbling at [Romney’s] heels." Despite campaigning almost exclusively in New Hampshire, former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman secured just 17 percent of the vote, but argued that "third place is a ticket to ride" and vowed to continue his campaign in New Hampshire. We play excerpts from last night’s speeches by the top three Republican contenders. [includes rush transcript]moreless
