Hunter ignoring Iowa (upbeat, focused on NH)

Note that this article eas written on the day of the Iowa Caucus, but it explains that Duncan Hunter has put much more emphasis on New Hampshire whose primaries are today!

U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter is all but ignoring tonight's Iowa Republican caucus in favor of concentrating on upcoming votes in Wyoming and New Hampshire.

In a telephone interview between campaign stops in New Hampshire on Wednesday, the cash-strapped, long-shot presidential candidate maintained that he's upbeat despite failing to garner more than single-digit support in polls in Iowa or anywhere else.

"My motto in politics is never be disappointed and never quit," Hunter, R-El Cajon, said. "I think this is still an open race and no one has surged to take a commanding lead."
