Drexel tried and tried, but the Dragons couldn't make it all the way back yesterday and dropped a 75-72 decision to New Hampshire. After winning its first-ever North Atlantic Conference game on Monday over Maine, Drexel (4-9 overall, 1-1 league) came out of the blocks slowly against New Hampshire (4-9, 3-1). "Coming in, we knew it was going to be difficult," Drexel coach Bill Herrion said. "We knew we would have to play very well to win. I was a little disappointed with the way we started.

Five fumble recoveries and a big day for Delaware all-America safety Warren McIntire helped the Blue Hens roll over New Hampshire, 44-22, yesterday in a Yankee Conference game. The fumble recoveries were a big part of Delaware's 28-0 first-half lead, which helped erase the sting of last week's 21-20 non-conference loss to West Chester. Defensively, McIntire recovered two fumbles, forced another, and broke up a pass. "We played much better (than last week) in every way," said Hens coach Tubby Raymond, whose club improved to 3-1 (3-0)

Now that the permafrost portion of the presidential primary season has ended, a few observations: Yes, Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts has earned the title of Democratic "front-runner. " His wins in New Hampshire and Iowa demonstrate an ability to hang tough, especially considering his campaign staff was in shambles only recently. And no, the race isn't over. Several candidates have earned further consideration by voters in larger, more diverse states. (The closest our region will come to having a meaningful say in the contest is when Delaware holds its primary Tuesday.

NASHUA, N.H. - They came into New Hampshire with the most to lose, two candidates swamped in Iowa by a wave of political change. They had little time for course corrections. So Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton and Republican Mitt Romney worked hard this weekend to be seen as "change agents," a challenging task since both are candidates of the political establishment. And they sought to call into question the change credentials of their principal opponents in tomorrow's first-in-the-nation primary.

Republicans, unified and disciplined on Capitol Hill, are about to break into open warfare over the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue. Despite some high-profile withdrawals in recent weeks, the prospect of facing a damaged and vulnerable President Clinton is drawing a swarm of Republicans interested in challenging him in 1996. When New Hampshire Republicans gather this evening for a dinner to start the year leading to their primary, the first in the nation, nine potential candidates for the 1996 presidential nomination will line up to court their favor.

Facing New Hampshire voters at a recent town hall-style meeting, a Republican presidential candidate advocated for strengthening the military, repealing Obamacare, and providing treatment for drug addicts. He declared that the United States needs to "mean what we say" to adversaries, and panned the leaking of classified information by Edward Snowden, who "ought to be locked up for a thousand years. " The talking points sounded like Gov. Christie's - but it was Ohio Gov. John Kasich facing voters at the Portsmouth Country Club, striking positions similar to the New Jersey governor's.

MANCHESTER, N.H. - Bryan Clickner had little opinion of Lindsey Graham until he saw the South Carolina senator at a town hall-style meeting - and decided that if Graham were elected president, the country would "be in good shape. " Clickner hadn't been particularly interested in Gov. Christie, either, but that, too, changed after watching the New Jersey governor on the town hall circuit. Last week, Clickner awaited the arrival of the 16th Republican to enter the 2016 presidential race - Ohio Gov. John Kasich - at yet another town hall meeting, this time at Rivier University in Nashua.

CAMANCHE, Iowa - The hog roast for the local Republican Party here was to begin at 6 p.m. Friday, but there was an unexpected delay: no butter. So when Gov. Christie took to the podium 90 minutes later, after some 200 voters filled their plates with pork and sufficiently buttered corn, he made sure to take note. When he returned to New Jersey, Christie explained, his wife would want to know the most memorable part of his trip. "Now I still have a whole 'nother day tomorrow in Iowa," Christie said, "but I can't imagine that there's going to be anything that's more memorable than when I tell my wife that I was in Clinton County, Iowa, and they didn't have the butter for the corn.

It rained on their first date, and Sara charmed Ron by showing up in her wellies. Later, when they lived together, a torrential storm flushed eight inches of water into their basement apartment in Washington. The couple decamped to a hotel and saw the crisis as a test: "This really sucks, but we're going to be OK," Ron says. "We laughed it off.

The super PAC supporting Gov. Christie's presidential candidacy announced Tuesday that it had raised $11 million since it was formed in February, a haul close to some of his competitors' but significantly less than the amount raised by allies of Jeb Bush. Christie, a Republican who formally announced his candidacy June 30, has not disclosed fund-raising totals for his campaign. He will not have to report those figures until Oct. 15. Phil Cox, director of the super PAC America Leads, said the group had set a goal of raising $15 million to $20 million by the end of 2015 and was on track to exceed that.

WITH apologies to Stephen Sondheim: Send in the clowns. There ought to be clowns . . . but wait, they're already here. How many Republican candidates can one get into one of those miniature cars in the center ring of the presidential circus now playing an extended gig in various locations throughout the country? There are already some 14, or is it 15, who want to be the GOP's nominee for the job no one in his right mind would want in the first place. Among the latest, of course, are the comb-over champion of the western world, Donald Trump, and the specialist in traffic jams, Gov. Chris Christie, of New Jersey.

It's time for some traffic problems on the road to the White House. Presaging even less time for his day job running New Jersey, Gov. Christie became the 14th official candidate to merge into the Republican presidential bottleneck Tuesday. Christie made the long-expected announcement at the North Jersey high school where he once settled for the presidency of his class. It was also at Livingston High that a callow Christie met (though, by his account, was too cool to hang out with)

Gov. Christie is set to announce his presidential candidacy Tuesday at the high school he attended, a venue that will enable him to feature his roots and upbringing. The Livingston School District's interim superintendent, however, isn't embracing the role as host. "I don't think it's any secret that most of my political and educational views are about 180 degrees from the governor's," Jim O'Neill said Monday. A critic of the Republican governor's policies on charter schools and the state's management of school districts under its control, among other issues, O'Neill doesn't plan to attend the announcement.

TRENTON - Facing reporters Friday, Gov. Christie wouldn't confirm his plans to announce a presidential campaign early next week. But he inched a little closer.

I've played quarterback for coach Kelly, and I've played in this offense before," said Day, a starter at QB for three seasons at New Hampshire when Kelly was the offensive coordinator there.
