Final results: Summary results | Town resultsThe BasicsThe New Hampshire primary is a mainstay in American electoral politics. Every four years, voters gather to help determine the Republican and/or Democratic nominee for President. While the state only has 12 electoral votes in 2012 (normally it’s 24, but the Republican National Committee penalized the state party for moving up the event date), the primary’s position as one of the earliest contests gives the state out-sized influence over the nomination process.Only the Iowa caucuses come before New Hampshire’s primary. Traditionally, New Hampshire’s broad-based primary contest has been seen as a counter-weight to Iowa’s more drawn-out caucus process, which tends to draw a smaller core of party faithful. In the case of the 2012 Republican race, New Hampshire’s electorate is seen to represent the more libertarian-leaning, fiscally conservative wing of the party, while Iowa voters are seen as representing the socially conservative wing of the GOP base.N.H.

Peterborough Town Hall was the sight of John McCain’s final town hall meeting in the 2008 election.

Four years later, he told a small crowd that being back in town was a special feeling.

The Arizona Senator questioned President Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East, citing the embassy attack in Libya.

We lost four brave Americans. There was ample warnings about the security deterioration. The President can say all the things he wants to, but facts are stubborn things.

McCain was joined by Senator Kelly Ayotte. The two also campaigned for Romney in Raymond.

They both stressed foreign policy, which is the topic of the final Presidential debate on Monday.
