The New Hampshire primary is anyone’s race as several Republican presidential candidates vie for a top tier finish less than two weeks before voters head to the polls.

Uncertainties are mounting as candidates fail to sway the state’s many undecided voters one way or the other, despite months of courting by the various campaigns. And more than 40 percent are not registered with any political party, giving them the power to choose which party they’d like to vote with come Feb. 9.

Billionaire businessman Donald Trump, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie each made their case for why they deserved voters’ support, as well as taking a few shots at their competitors.

Sanders is heavily favored in Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary. In the GOP, Trump is expected to win, but the more secular demographics of New Hampshire present an opportunity for an establishment Republican to pick up delegates at the expense of Cruz.

“I love the New Hampshire primary. I love it because the interactions you have with voters in every setting is so rewarding, and voters in this state take a first, second, third, fourth look at you. They’re constantly evaluating,” Clinton said.

Mrs. Clinton leads all other candidates in financial support from Wall Street, which donated $2.9 million to her campaign through the end of 2015, according to campaign finance reports made public last week. By contrast, Mr. Sanders’s campaign received $55,226 from Wall Street.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush says political opponents need not paint each other as enemies.

The Des Moines Register is fishing for answers in Iowa following Monday’s caucuses. In an editorial published yesterday and headlined, “Something Smells in the Democratic Party,” the newspaper said “once again the world is laughing at Iowa. That’s fine. We can take ribbing over our quirky process. But what we can’t stomach is even the whiff of impropriety or error.”
