Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) – It's another cool and damp morning here at Saint Anselm College, the site of tomorrow night's CNN/WMUR/New Hampshire Union Leader Republican presidential debate.
But the weather is not putting a damper on retail politics here in the state that holds the first primary in the presidential primary and caucus calendar.
(CNN) – CNN will hold the first Republican presidential debate in the critical early voting state of New Hampshire at 8 p.m. ET on Monday.
With the 2012 election a little less than a year and a half away, there are still prominent Republicans who have yet to make a decision on whether they'll make a run for the White House but other contenders have been running for months.
Here's a look at the seven people who will share the stage at Saint Anselm College in Manchester:
(CNN) - The first photographs of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords since she was shot in the head in January show the congresswoman smiling.
Taken outside, the photos show her with short hair and wearing glasses. One photo shows her alone, smiling at the camera; in the other, she is sitting alongside another woman.
Juneau, Alaska (CNN) – Some highlights from the 24,000 pages of e-mails from Sarah Palin's governorship, released Friday by Alaska state officials:
"Pls make sure we're getting state business announcements out to the public under my name as often as possible - let Sharon and Bill know the importance of this thanks. Also, when you hear my speeches on the road that reference AK and/or our energy issues it's appropriate to do pressers on that bc we'd cover any other natl candidate's statements on AK-centric comments and references. Thanks"

Juneau, Alaska (CNN) – Thousands of pages of e-mail from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's administration range from the mundane details of governing to efforts to crack down on state news leaks and push back against critics.
Scattered among the 24,000 pages, released by state officials in Juneau on Friday, are glimpses of Palin periodically butting heads with top Alaskan political figures as she pushed to get landmark oil and gas legislation through the statehouse; demanding that Exxon finish paying damages for the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill; even dealing with complaints about high school football rivalries by offering to bake brownies.
