By
January 9, 2008

Arizona Sen. John McCain, written off for dead last year in the GOP Presidential sweepstakes, pulled off an solid win in the New Hampshire primary, easily defeating former front runner Mitt Romney and Iowa winner Mike Huckabee.

The networks called the race for McCain within minutes of the polls closing. With more than 65 percent of the vote counted, McCain had 37 percent, Romney 31 percent and Huckabee was a distant third at 12 percent.

Rudy Giuliani and Ron Paul battled for fourth place and non-factor Fred Dalton Thompson scored just over one percent.
