Now that Iowa’s critical caucus is over, attention turns to the nation’s first primary. A predominately Republican state, New Hampshire primary has held many surprises in the past, such as John McCain's overwhelming victory over George W. Bush in 2000. Former Utah Governor John Hunstman has almost solely focused on New Hampshire over the past months, and spent Tuesday evening campaigning in the New England state instead of Iowa.

Kelefa Sanneh, staff writer for The New Yorker, and Grant Bosse, lead investigator for the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy, a New Hampshire-based free-market think tank, talk about this next step in the presidential race.
