Santorum tries to shoulder past Romney, Gingrich in debate

Charleston, South Carolina (CNN) - Arguing that momentum was on his side after a delayed announcement of victory in Iowa, former Sen. Rick Santorum sought to weaken rivals Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich with a series of direct attacks on the two front-runners in the last South Carolina debate ahead of the state's primary on Saturday.

Santorum charged both Romney and Gingrich would be weaker opponents against President Barack Obama, saying neither could draw a contrast with the incumbent over health care policy.

Perry to New Hampshire hours after speaking in South Carolina

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - Just hours after speaking at a major conservative conference in South Carolina, Texas Gov. Rick Perry will meet and greet voters in New Hampshire.

CNN has confirmed that Perry, who appears to be moving closer and closer to a run for the Republican presidential nomination, will attend a house party at the home of GOP state representative Pam Tucker. The deputy speaker of the New Hampshire House of Representatives was one of a group of Granite State lawmakers and GOP activists to travel to Texas last week to meet with the governor and encourage him to make a bid for the White House.

Boston (CNN) - It's a party atmosphere inside the main ballroom at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. That's where more than a thousand supporters of Republican Senate hopeful Scott Brown are celebrating what they hope will be their party's first senate victory in Massachusetts since 1972.

Former Boston College and pro football quarterback Doug Flutie and his band are playing crowd-pleasing classic songs like "Sweet Home Alabama."

An Uncle Sam look-alike dressed in sequins is dancing in celebration.

A Brown campaign official tells CNN that the candidate, a state Senator, is watching election returns with his family in a hotel suite. He is being joined by former Massachusetts governor and 2008 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
