Nashua, New Hampshire (CNN) -The voters marched into the Amherst Street Elementary School until minutes before the polls closed at 8 p.m. ET. The political theme for the night - change something, maybe even everything.

Who Said It: Republicans Take a Page from DNC Playbook

,

(CNN) – “He's deliberately bankrupted companies, dismantled them, shipped jobs overseas, fired people for profit.” Can you guess who lodged that attack against Mitt Romney? Was it DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz or Republican Presidential Candidate Newt Gingrich?

Now what was the judgment and the character?....I think that is a legitimate question to ask somebody who wants to be President of the United States.”
