From Reason Magazine:
Can a nice guy finish first in the Live Free or Die State? Republican Gary Johnson hopes so. “I’m putting my chips on the table in New Hampshire,” the former two-term governor of New Mexico said today at a National Press Club luncheon.
Despite being a no-show in Ames, Iowa, Johnson has rented an office and hired four “young ideologues” as staffers in New Hampshire. If he does well in the New Hampshire primary, “I can last,” Johnson said, adding that “you can go from obscurity to prominence with a good showing in Hew Hampshire. It happened to Eugene McCarthy.”
