Romney wins in NH primary – Paul 2nd, Huntsman 3rd – Mitt hits Obama in speech – On to S.C.

GOLD: As you may have heard, former governor Mitt Romney won the New Hampshire primary last night, propelling his campaign for the Republic presidential nomination to nigh-inevitability. Romney used his victory rally speech to lash out not his remaining GOP opponents, but at President Obama, offering a round of general election-style criticisms. (UL, Herald, Globe)

SILVER: Ron Paul finished second and almost no one wrote about it. Paul supporters can now go back to complaining about a lack of press coverage instead of the tricky business of having the press pay attention to the congressman and scrutinizing all the maybe-kinda racist things he’s maybe-kinda written int he past.(Globe)

BRONZE: Jon "Live Free or Go Back to Utah" Huntsman narrowly avoided that fate-worse-than-death by placing third and charing ahead to South Carolina. (WaPo)
