The network said with more than 10 percent of the vote counted, Romney won 36 percent of the vote and congressman Ron Paul was second with 25 percent.

The primary in New Hampshire, a small northeastern US state that often plays an outsized role in presidential campaigns, is the second contest in the state-by-state battle for the Republican nomination to face Democratic President Barack Obama on November 6. Romney narrowly won the first contest, the Iowa caucuses, on January 3.
