Huntsman may refuse to be the 'goat' of the GOP race, but he and his wife, Mary Kaye, did meet one named Izak and his owner, Bill Higgins, on Monday night outside the McConnell Community Center in Dover, N.H.

On the last day he'll have New Hampshire to himself, GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, who bypassed the Iowa caucuses, plans to travel from Pembroke to Peterborough in search of enough votes to break into the top three in next week's Granite State primary.
With his presidential opponents scrambling for last-minute support in advance of Tuesday's Iowa caucuses, Huntsman has been methodically wooing New Hampshire voters in nearly 150 events over the past few weeks.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul picked Exeter, a town of about 14,000 in southeastern New Hampshire, to announce his presidential run in May.
So when NPR photographer John Poole and I arrived in New Hampshire today in advance of the state's GOP primary next week, we decided to stop by this quintessential New England town and see how Paul is faring.
We headed to Me & Ollie's Bakery and Café, in the shadow of the Exeter Town Hall, where Paul officially announced his third run for the presidency.
This is WEEKEND EDITION from NPR News. I'm Scott Simon. Mitt Romney had one of the busiest public stretches of his presidential campaign this week. A big blue bus with his name on the side rolled along hundreds of miles of New Hampshire roads making more than a dozen stops to meet voters just three weeks before the primary. The campaign called it The Earn It Tour. NPR's Ari Shapiro was along for the ride.
