Ski season in New Hampshire. People of all ages take to the slopes at Pat's Peak in southern New Hampshire. Some with more success than others. But this is also campaign season. And that means presidential politics. On Tuesday New Hampshire voters will make their choice in the Republican presidential primary. All eyes are on Republican frontrunner former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. (SOUNDBITE)(English) BEN WINTHER, SKIER, SAYING: "I know Mitt Romney seems to be doing really well and you know, he's close to home here so we sort of know him and like him and he seems sort of moderate. So I think that's sort of the way we're thinking right now, but I don't know that anything's really wrapped up." (SOUNDBITE)(English) LISA NEIKAM, SKIER, SAYING: "I think Mitt Romney." Some are still looking for someone else. (SOUNDBITE)(English) HEIDI QUINN, SAYING: "Not Mitt Romney. I want a businessman there. That's what I want. Someone who can make the decisions and can help us with our deficit and that type of thing. I feel like we need a businessman in there." Polls show Romney is in the lead. But the race for second place could prove to be key as the primary cycle moves to South Carolina. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters
