Former Lowell Sun scribe and longtime political writer for the Nashua Telegraph, Kevin Landrigan has covered many a New Hampshire Presidential Primary Race cycle – for Democrats as well as Republicans. In his column today Landrigan sees the current GOP race as a “hurry up and wait” season. He describes and divides the various periods of the race this way: the Ames Straw Poll; the Perry Pause; the Huntsman Hunt; the Early Debate-a-thon; and the Hamlet Impersonations. And then there’s the biggest factor in this hurry-up-and-wait season and that’s “the 800-pound gorilla in this N.H. GOP primary field” – former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. The WMUR-TV poll released Friday shows Romney still holding a 3-1 lead over the field with 42 percent to flavor of the week Herman Cain’s 13 percent with 11 percent for Paul, 8 percent for Huntsman and Perry with 6 percent. Landrigan’s take on this political season is interesting and experienced.
