McCain wins in New Hampshire

John McCain has won the Republican primary in New Hampshire. I haven’t seen any projection of the margin of victory, but since Fox News called the race so early (it hasn’t yet called the Democratic primary) the margin is probably fairly substantial.
New Hampshire, of course, is the perfect state for McCain, but it’s also good state for Romney. For McCain to have defeated Romney there, after being so far being in the polls, is a terrific accomplishment for the Senator.
UPDATE: It looks like Mike Huckabee will finish third with about 12 percent of the vote. That result won’t hurt him one bit.
