The New Hampshire Primary is just days away, and the Republican candidates are using every tool at their disposal to make sure their name is checked off on the ballot.
Their political advertisements and public events can certainly portray a positive image to the average New Hampshire voter before they make their way to the polls. But it takes more than images and slogans to garner the trust of Granite State residents.
Not every voter is a political junkie who combs the web for every snippet of information on their candidate before making up their mind. Most voters are too busy with their own lives to scrutinize every detail about their potential choice.
That's why it helps to have someone they know and trust endorse a candidate who aligns with their political beliefs. And Mitt Romney has more of those New Hampshire power players in his corner than any of the other GOP contenders.
