BRENTWOOD, NH (AP) - Rick Santorum is counting on momentum to carry him to victory in New Hampshire and beyond.
He has little choice.
The former Pennsylvania senator devoted virtually all his time and energy to the Iowa caucuses, where he barely lost to GOP front-runner Mitt Romney. But Santorum has only a skeleton staff in other states. He also has very little money.
With the first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary just six days away, Santorum has significant hurdles to climb if he hopes to emerge as Romney's stiffest challenger for the party nod.
