New Year's Eve parties take Huntsman across NH

No Republican presidential hopeful will be attending as many New Year's Eve parties in New Hampshire as Jon Huntsman.

With Mitt Romney, the race's front-runner, heading back to Iowa after a brief overnight in the nation's first primary state, Huntsman again has New Hampshire to himself while the rest of the field focuses on Tuesday's Iowa caucuses.

Huntsman is skipping Iowa and pinning all his hopes on New Hampshire's Jan. 10 primary. He's attending six house parties Saturday across the state Saturday.

At his first stop in Campton, Huntsman repeated his call for congressional term limits and said there is no way Romney can bring about change given his support among current members of Congress.
