Romney Greets NH Voters before heading to Iowa

Romney Greets N.H. Voters Before Heading To Iowa 12/27/2007 -- With 12 days left before the New Hampshire primary, Republican Mitt Romney was the only presidential candidate campaigning in the Granite State on Thursday. Romney shook hands with voters in diners in Nashua and Manchester during one of his last visits before the Jan. 8 primary. Most of the other candidates were in Iowa, hoping to gain support before that state's caucuses on Jan. 3.

Nashua voter Judd Lundberg asked Romney directly why he should vote for the former Massachusetts governor.
"You've got someone who shows he can get the job done in different settings and knows how the economy works, and I don't think there's anyone else in this race who has experience in the business and volunteer worlds like I've had," Romney said.

Romney is leading in the recent New Hampshire polls, but a significant number of voters remain undecided. Sen. John McCain has been gaining ground, and the Concord Monitor recently slammed Romney, telling readers not to vote for him.

Voters said that they were glad to meet Romney as they get closer to making up their minds.

"Just meeting someone personally is very important," Lundberg said.
