Amid 2016 speculation, Cruz takes grassroots pitch to New Hampshire

(CNN) - Sen. Ted Cruz wrapped up a week in the political spotlight headlining a political fundraiser Friday in New Hampshire, home to the traditional first primary contest in the race for the White House.

The Texas Republican, who is considered a possible contender for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, was the main attraction at a reception for the New Hampshire Republican Party in Dublin, where he told a receptive crowd that changes in Washington were only possible through mobilizing grassroots activists around issues like defunding President Barack Obama’s health care law.

Second straight poll indicates big lead for Christie

According to a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday morning, two-thirds of registered voters in New Jersey say Christie deserves to be re-elected in November 2013, with only one in four saying he doesn't deserve a second term in Trenton.

According to a Quinnipiac University survey released Tuesday morning, 72% of Garden State voters give the first term Republican governor a thumbs up on the job he's doing in office, a 16-point jump since before the storm struck the state in late October.
