Almost 1100 miles, not to mention some candidate perspectives, separate Iowa from New Hampshire

New Hampshire Offers Hope to Candidates Who Lagged in Iowa.  (The New York Times, 2/1/2016)
Former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida, Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio have long viewed New Hampshire, a politically unpredictable state with an influential bloc of moderate Republicans and independent voters, as more hospitable terrain than Iowa.

With an average polling of 0.7% in New Hampshire, you can understand why Huckabee packed his bags for a little r&r.  (What about it, Rick?  Nonpolitical road trip?  After all, you and Huck attended that Trump event together.)
