Live-Blogging the ABC GOP Presidential Debate

CONCORD, NH–Hello, everyone, I’m here in New Hampshire, following candidates around and reporting on the latest trends in the primary, which is being held Tuesday. We’re in the home stretch now, as candidates make their final pitch to the voters.

So, we’re going to have two debates in the next 12 hours–one sponsored by ABC News and Yahoo right now and one by NBC News and Facebook Sunday morning, which I’ll be covering here in Concord.

Let’s start:

9:03: Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney says the latest employment report–200,000 new jobs–was good news, but it wasn’t because of President Obama, who, he says, made the recovery more tepid. “It’s like blaming the rooster for the dawn.”

9:05: Former Sen. Rick Santorum attacks Romney for being a manager, not a leader or commander in chief.

    the debate was completely biased. They didn’t let anyone but romney talk. They completely ignored Ron Paul! ‘

    ABC, Diane and George, obviously dedicated to deliverimg to Obama his preferred opponent… Romney of Romneycare. Did any keep track of the amount of time they gave each candidate? I’m betting that Newt had the least amount of time.
