Mr. Duprey said that the key to performing well in New Hampshire is not to give speeches, but to hold town halls that give candidates a chance to interact with voters in a more intimate setting.
"For candidates who might not have as much money as some others, or who aren't yet nationally known, this is a great time to come to New Hampshire to start to introduce themselves and to listen to what New Hampshire voters are concerned about," Mr. Duprey said. "Anyone who thinks the Republican rules only favor the better known and better funded candidates should not complain. Instead they should come to New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada. There are lots of low fares to each of those states."
