Paul Eyes Strong Finish in New Hampshire

Tuesday, 10 Jan 2012 06:38 AM


MANCHESTER, N.H — Ron Paul is counting on the "Live Free or Die" state of New Hampshire to propel his unorthodox campaign into the next round of presidential contests.

Polls show the Texas congressman running second to Mitt Romney in New Hampshire, which hosts its primary Tuesday.

Paul's libertarian, isolationist message has attracted a loyal following among some Republicans as well as independents, who can vote in the primary.

Paul planned to visit polling places around New Hampshire Tuesday. He planned to fly to South Carolina, site of the nation's first southern contest, on Wednesday.

While he's steered clear of criticizing front-runner Mitt Romney, Paul has said the former Massachusetts governor is part of the "political establishment" he hopes to tackle as president.
