Romney leads Republican nomination as Presidential race heats up

By Vanessa Martinez, California

Republican front-runner Mitt Romney is attempting to restore his image just a day away from the January 10 primary in New Hampshire.

According to CBS News, Republican Newt Gingrich lashed out on Sunday against Romney at the NBC News/Facebook debate in Concord, New Hampshire.

“If you look at The New York Times’ article, I think it was on Thursday, you would clearly have to say that Bain, at times engaged in behaviour where they looted a company, leaving behind, 1,700 unemployed people,” said Gingrich, as reported by CBS News.

Gingrich was referring to Bain Capital, a firm which was once headed by Romney, and the means by which they profited.

Romney responded by leveling himself with the New Hampshire public at a rally and sharing stories that were relatable to the average American.

“I know what it’s like to worry about whether you’re going to get fired. There were a couple of times I wondered if I was going to get a pink-slip,” Romney said.

Iowa caucus

Romney was the winner of the Republican Iowa caucus on January 3. He defeated his GOP rival, Rick Santorum, by just eight votes.

Republican Michele Bachmann ended her campaign after the caucus results saw her winning only 5 percent of the Iowan vote.

The results determined that the three leading forerunners for the Republican candidacy were Romney (25 percent), Rick Santorum (25 percent), and Ron Paul (21 percent).

 

However, according to NJ.com, a website reporting New Jersey news, blogger John Farmer said the Iowan caucus has a history of being unrepresentative.

Elsewhere in American politics… Unemployment rates fall

The U.S. unemployment rate dropped to 8.5 percent, in December, according to a news article in Bloomberg.

The report also included Frank Newport’s, editor-in-chief of Princeton, New Jersey’s Gallup Poll. He also shared his opinion on the drop in unemployment and what it means to U.S. President Barack Obama.

“This can make a difference for Obama if it persists into the spring,” said Newport. “It’s the sense of direction in the economy that matters more than the numbers.”
