Romney Wins New Hampshire


With about a quarter of the ballots counted, Mitt Romney is projected to win the New Hampshire primary. With 26 percent of the votes in, Romney holds 35 percent of the vote, followed by Ron Paul at 24 percent and Jon Huntsman with 16 percent.

It's a good win for Romney if these numbers hold, but perhaps not quite the decisive one his campaign was hoping for. Former Utah Gov. Huntsman, meanwhile, campaiagned heavily here and may well be considering whether it is worth continuing much further.

I'll be posting more reaction as the evening goes on, including from the other campaigns.
