Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2012-01-11

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has won Tuesday’s New Hampshire Republican primary, his second victory in his fight to become his party’s candidate for the November presidential election.

- Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney wins Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, his second victory after he was declared winner of last week’s Iowa caucuses.

- US television networks put Texas congressman Ron Paul in second place and former Utah governor Jon Huntsman in third place in the tiny New England state.

- Mitt Romney becomes the first Republican who is not an incumbent president to win both the early voting states, after his slim victory over former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum in Iowa.

- The former Massachusetts governor’s New Hampshire victory lends his campaign added momentum ahead of the critical contests in South Carolina on Jan. 21 and Florida on Jan. 31. Romney leads in polls of both states.
