In this week's issue of the Boston Phoenix -- in print and online now -- I have articles about Mitt Romney's path to the nomination, and the operatives who will be running the various New Hampshire campaigns. Plus, on the blog, my new rankings of candidates' chances!
I pegged these articles for this issue a few weeks ago, as signs suggested that Romney would be announcing sometime in mid-April, and I got lucky with his announcement (of a Presidential Exploratory Committee) earlier this week.
In the Romney piece, I offer my analysis of what Romney needs to do to win the GOP nomination. The other offers a little peek at the Granite State politicos behind the scenes, who in the last few weeks have divvied up among the candidates and will be battling one another for the coming eight months or so.

The New Hampshire article is here: Choosing Sides
And the rankings are here. Enjoy!
