The N.H. Republican Party gets a new leader, who's now charged with building up the party's bank account. Senator Jeanne Shaheen announces she'll seek a third term.  We check out who's already on the campaign trail in the Granite State for the first in the nation presidential primary, and who will sit this one out.  And we get some insight into Sunday's Superbowl LIII from the Nashua Telegraph's Tom King, who is covering his tenth Superbowl.
