FOX News has projected the winner of the New Hampshire primary: Mitt Romney.  The former Massachusetts Governor becomes the first non-incumbent GOP Presidential candidate to win the first-in-the-nation caucus in Iowa AND the first-in-the-nation primary in New Hampshire back-to-back since they settled into their “first-in-the-nation” status in 1976.

Addressing supporters in his victory speech at his headquarters in Manchester, NH, Romney challenged President Obama:

Jon Huntsman, who all but skipped Iowa to focus his campaign on New Hampshire, finishes third.  Finishing sixth: Rick Perry.  Perry had already moved his campaign to South Carolina before ballots were cast in New Hampshire, choosing to focus on the primary there on Saturday, January 21.
