Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won a significant victory in New Hampshire Tuesday, earning 38 percent of the vote in the state's Republican primary.
Romney is the first non-incumbent Republican to win Iowa and New Hampshire in more than three decades.
"We made history," Romney told supporters Tuesday evening.
"Our president looks across America and says it could be worse. It could be worse? That's not what it means to be an American," Romney later added. "What defines us as Americans is we know it will be better - and it must be better."
Romney was expected to win New Hampshire. Does this mean he's well on his way to becoming the GOP nominee? What's next for Santorum and Gingrich, who both had a poor showing Tuesday?
