The election of tea party candidate Jack Kimball (pictured) as chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party Saturday shows the tea party remains a potent force. “The energy that activists brought to the mid-terms is now being channeled in a different direction — one that could reshape the 2012 GOP presidential race and require candidates to rethink the traditional approaches to winning the Republican nomination,” Politico reports.
