Paul Second in New Hampshire, Huntsman Finishes Third

Rep. Ron Paul of Texas finished second and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman finished third in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday night, CNN reported, results that put Huntsman’s Republican presidential campaign in jeopardy.

Several news organizations declared Mitt Romney the winner of New Hampshire as soon as polls closed at 8 p.m. While the former Massachusetts governor was heavily favored to win, the only suspense of the night was whether Huntsman would do well enough to move his campaign to South Carolina. Huntsman had campaigned almost exclusively in New Hampshire.


“I have to believe there are at least three tickets out of New Hampshire,” Huntsman told CNN before the race was called. “We go south from here.”

Paul finished third in Iowa and second in New Hampshire, and he has the resources needed to continue collecting delegates.
