Johnson rushes to file New Hampshire paperwork

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - Heading off an embarrassing blunder, former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson will file his paperwork for candidacy in New Hampshire's primary Friday - the day of the filing deadline.

Johnson almost missed his chance to appear on the first-in-the-nation primary ballot. When the campaign realized Thursday that Johnson's paperwork was in danger of not being filed, the governor took a plane up from Arizona so he could sign the papers in person, according to press spokesman Elizabeth Renda.

GOP hopefuls to Twitter debate after early snafus, confusion

Washington (CNN) – Getting politicians to keep their answers short is tough. On Wednesday, six of them will be forced to by the confines of Twitter.

In what's being billed as "groundbreaking," six of the 10 major Republican presidential candidates will participate in a Twitter presidential debate. They will answer questions in 140 characters or less. That, of course, is the maximum number of characters allowed per tweet. Organizers of the debate say they will allow the candidates to type multiple tweets - but that short answers are still encouraged.

Gary Johnson sees the presidential light

Washington (CNN) – Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson said Thursday his path to victory for the Republican presidential nomination is predicated on a strong showing in New Hampshire, the early primary state that can make or break a bid for the White House.

Johnson, who is polling in the low single digits in national polls, said he's not necessarily skipping Iowa, the first state to weigh in on the 2012 GOP nomination, but acknowledged his centrist views on social issues will not play very well in the Hawkeye State.
