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.

NASHUA, N.H. - Car-rental agencies likely were cleared out of Chevrolet Suburbans as almost every Republican presidential hopeful, major and minor, flocked to New Hampshire on Friday for the state's first candidate forum, a chance to jostle for some political oxygen in a crowded field. In all, 17 declared or potential GOP candidates were scheduled to participate in the First in the Nation Leadership Summit.

Although he is giving every sign of running for president, Gov. Christie says he still has not decided whether he will throw his hat in the ring. "We're still going through the really personal part of this decision," the potential Republican contender said in an interview with Matt Lauer broadcast Thursday on the NBC Today show. "You don't rush that decision. " "I've got a day job to do, which is really important," Christie also said in the interview, recorded over milkshakes in a diner in New Hampshire, where the governor spent two days this week testing the presidential waters.

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J. - After spending two days telling New Hampshire voters about a need to reform federal entitlement programs and bashing President Obama's foreign policy, Gov. Christie resumed the town-hall circuit at home Thursday by returning to his bread-and-butter state issues: public worker benefits and education. The governor, a prospective candidate for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, wants public workers to contribute more toward their health benefits to align New Jersey's plans with those in the private sector.

LONDONDERRY, N.H. - Gov. Christie fielded questions Wednesday on topics ranging from immigration to vaccination as he made a personal appeal to New Hampshire voters during his first town-hall meeting in the early presidential primary state. Christie, who has been lagging in presidential polls, introduced himself to more than 200 people at the Londonderry Lions Club not by talking about his accomplishments as New Jersey's governor, but about his parents and his upbringing. He tried to cast himself as truthful, the brand his political team has been selling.

NEWMARKET, N.H. - Thronged by reporters outside a pizza shop Tuesday, Gov. Christie dismissed negative polls as "temporary snapshots," projecting confidence he could change the minds of voters averse to a Christie candidacy. "I'm going to talk about difficult issues, and I'm going to tell them exactly what I think," Christie said of his return to New Hampshire, which hosts the first presidential primary. "If they walk away with that impression, then it will be time well spent. " That message seemed to connect with some of the voters Christie met on the first of several days he will spend in New Hampshire this week, a high-stakes visit at a time when his 2016 hopes have been perceived as weakened.

Polls have cast a harsh light on his presidential chances, but Gov. Christie will try to win over early-primary state voters with a Jersey-tested tool: the town-hall meeting. Christie, who has held 134 such meetings in his home state, will hold two this week in New Hampshire, where he also plans to announce a national entitlement reform proposal. That subject dovetails with what Christie has framed at New Jersey town halls as confronting hard truths about the state's public worker pension system.

In his appeals to a national audience, Gov. Christie is promoting a record of fiscal accomplishment in New Jersey: cutting spending, shrinking the state payroll, and bucking Democratic demands to raise taxes after years of excess in Trenton. "If we did it in New Jersey, . . . for God's sake we can do it in the United States of America," he recently told a crowd at a Republican dinner in New Hampshire, after describing $2.5 billion in cuts to spending and an 8,000-person reduction in the state government workforce.

TRENTON — A New Jersey judge ruled Monday that Gov. Christie violated public workers' contractual rights when he cut the state's payment to their pension system in June, and ordered him to work with the Legislature to find a solution. "The court cannot allow the state to simply turn its back on its obligations to New Jersey's public employees," Superior Court Judge Mary C. Jacobson wrote in her 130-page decision. The ruling came a day before Christie, a Republican considering running for president in 2016, was to deliver his annual budget address to the Legislature.

CONCORD, N.H. - Leo Ouellette, a retired mailman from New Hampshire, is a fan of Gov. Christie's brash personality. But that does not necessarily mean he'll vote for Christie in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary. While Ouellette, 72, likes Christie - "I don't want a wimp," he said Monday, a cup of coffee in front of him, at the Windmill Restaurant in Concord - he also likes Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. "I'm wide open," Ouellette said. So, too, is the field of prospective Republican presidential candidates, as viewed by voters, elected officials, and strategists in the state.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - James Franklin scrolled through his Twitter feed. Between swift swipes of his finger, the Penn State coach looked up to watch ESPN's national signing day coverage on a large flat-screen TV.
