Thanks to all the voters who turned out in barely 40 degree temperatures this Saturday in order to exercise a novel (for NH) method of figuring out which GOP candidate has the broadest appeal to the grassroots.
All candidates were invited, nay, exhorted, to attend, or send representatives, to encourage their supporters, and to send a surrogate speaker or a video clip to make their pitch.
The results reflect a combination of the candidate’s breadth of appeal, and the effort put forth by their campaign – our hats off to Ted Cruz and his team for encouraging the most supporters to attend, and for persuading the majority of the voters freed from early rounds to join their group for the final count.
A well deserved victory!
