Record Number of GOP Candidates on NH Ballot

Thirty Republicans have filed to run for president in New Hampshire, beating the old record of 25 candidates in 1992.

Thirteen Democrats in addition to President Obama filed to have their names on the Granite State's primary ballot.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson filed their papers in person Friday in order to meet the deadline of 5 p.m. ET.

Needless to say, it will be a crowded primary ballot in New Hampshire. Although Secretary of State Bill Gardner has yet to announce the official date, it is widely expected to be set for January 10.


Filed with the Secretary of State as of October 17-28, 2011 (4:00pm)
