Romney picks up more support in New Hampshire

Concord, New Hampshire (CNN) - Mitt Romney announced the support of 10 more New Hampshire state representatives Monday, as the presidential race continues to intensify in the first-in-the-nation primary state.

The new support brings Romney's total to 19 members of the state House of Representatives.

Last week Texas Gov. Rick Perry released a list of 27 state representatives who had signed on to support his campaign.

There are 294 Republicans currently serving as state reps. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman has picked up six.

Romney has strong ties to the state and has made winning here a center point of his campaign strategy. He led the field in two state polls last week, though voters here are notoriously reluctant to choose a candidate too early.

Both Perry and Romney will make appearances in New Hampshire this week. Romney will host a town hall Wednesday. Perry will attend a series of events, including his first town hall here, Friday and Saturday.

    Oh, dear God. Please CNN. NOT a representative by representative, day by day account of who supports who in GOPerville. The suspense would be too much, even for those who might actually care. Of which I do not.

    The left and the media is pushing hard for Romney to be the GOP candidate.
    That way America could choose between obama and obama lite.

    NH, MA all the same. Didn't he live in NH in his son's basement so he wouldn't have to pay taxes in Massachusetts. I thought I read something to that effect but I am not sure if I have the states wrong.
    Whatever it was he was trying to pay less taxes (another rich guy sticking it to the little guy by not paying his fair share) by pretending to live in one state and not the other. I guess he can't hide that BIG house he is building in CA.

    Marie MD it looks like Obama and the Democratic National Party have got you all worked up with their class warfare strategy for Obama 2012 campaign. Good luck with that. But the numbers Obama had used are already proven as unreliable and we are seeing a slide into pathetic desparation. They are counting on you so don't let up.
