Congratulations to Mitt Romney, who became the first presidential candidate from Massachusetts to ever lose the New Hampshire primary in a year when an incumbent was not running. Romney breaks the undefeated streak started by Calvin Coolidge in 1924 and continued by John F. Kennedy in 1960, Henry Cabot Lodge in 1964 (as a write-in candidate against Barry Goldwater and Nelson Rockefeller), Michael Dukakis in 1988, Paul Tsongas in 1992, and John Kerry in 2004. The first Bay Stater to lose New Hampshire was Ted Kennedy, who lost 52%-48% to Jimmy Carter in 1980.

Congrats, Mitt
