Rick Perry Nearly Doubles Buddy Roemer's New Hampshire Vote in Impressive Show of Strength
The Perry machine dispatches another opponent.
The Rick Perry juggernaut continued to lay waste to GOP primary opponents, neatly dispatching former Louisiana governor Buddy Roemer in Tuesday's New Hampshire primary.
Perry grabbed 1,735 votes in the Granite State, almost doubling the 920 votes received by Roemer, who had been perceived as the front-runner (in the Roemer household).
Roemer was not immediately available for comment, apparently continuing his campaign strategy of not being flashy, or known.
Among the other candidates -- all of them still in the race! -- who Perry beat were Fred Karger, Joe Story and Hugh Cort.

Because New Hampshire can't handle a real Texan, Perry was awarded no delegates despite his quadruple-digit showing.
The race now moves to South Carolina, where Perry supporters hope to break the magic 10,000-vote mark.
