Final Ad push in New Hampshire

Much like I did prior to Iowa caucus, I'm going to post the final ads of the candidates in the lead up to the New Hampshire primary. I should note, however, that some candidates aren't up with final ads. Fred Thompson is focusing on South Carolina, Mike Huckabee is lowering expectations to the point where a third place finish will look good, and Rudy Giuliani is still running "Ready". On the Democratic side, Barack Obama hasn't posted an ad like the one he did in advance of the Iowa caucus, and I don't see an ad from the Richardson or Gravel campaigns. If I got any of this wrong, I'd welcome your comments.

(Note: Dennis Kucinich has an ad running entitled "Reclaim America", but I can't find out for sure that they're running in New Hampshire.)

DVR Alert: NH debates and WY caucus

New Hampshire Debates: Later tonight, both the Democratic and Republican candidates will be debating at Saint Anselm's College in New Hampshire. Beginning at 7pm EST, ABC News, Facebook, and WMUR will host the Republicans first (sans Duncan Hunter), followed by the Democrats. In addition to Joe Biden and Chris Dodd - who dropped out of the race after the Iowa caucuses - Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel will not participate.

For more information on the debate and to watch the debates later today, visit the WMUR website.

As always, we encourage you to offer your thoughts about tonight in the comments section. I'd particularly like to hear your opinion on what must be done to stop the leading candidates' momentum from the Iowa caucus. Speaking of, MSNBC just reported that there is a mile-long line of people waiting to get into Barack Obama's event in Nashua this morning. UPDATE: Sam Graham-Felsen has more on Obama's blog.

(Related side note: As Chris noted yesterday, ABC and Facebook have partnered to weigh the views of Facebook users in advance of primary season. This is just another way that the new tools our New Politics Institute analyzed are being utilized.) 

Wyoming Caucus: I would be remiss if I failed to mention that the Wyoming Republican caucus will be over by the time the debates begin; but as the AP asks, will anyone have noticed the Equality State's participation in primary season? For those of you who are interested, the Billings Gazette has more information on the state's rather complicated process. 

Victory Speeches: What's your take?

It's evident that Mike Huckabee and Barack Obama had a unique opportunity in their victory speeches to capture voter sentiment and build momentum for their campaigns. I've posted their speeches below and would be interested in hearing your opinion on the effectiveness of their messages and deliveries:

Mike Huckabee's speech:

Rudy's FL Spanish-language radioad: Liderazgo

Rudy Giuliani's new Spanish-language ad, "Liderazgo" is a reminder that the former Mayor is focusing his efforts on Florida, not Iowa. (Background: Giuliani's ties to Florida's Cuban-American community were touched upon by Beth Reinhard in yesterday's Miami Herald.)

Listen to the ad here.

English Translation:

Voiceover: “President Reagan trusted him to combat crime. The people of New York elected him mayor when their city seemed doomed (lost), and was viewed by many as ungovernable. Rudy Giuliani. He cut down crime 56%. He lowered taxes 23 times, saving taxpayers more than $9 billion. He created new jobs, slashed bureaucracy … And New York again became one of the great cities of the United States and the world. We face great challenges. We need proven leaders. Rudy Giuliani. It was done in New York. It can be done in Washington. Rudy Giuliani: Experience, Results, Leadership. Rudy Giuliani President.

Mayor Giuliani: “I’m Rudy Giuliani and I approved this message.”

Voiceover: “Paid for by the Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee Incorporated.”
