Potential 2016 contenders flocking to I.A., N.H.

Potential Republican contenders for 2016 flock to Iowa and New Hampshire four times more than Democrats.

If you're not visiting New Hampshire you're not running for president... and Texas Governor Rick Perry made the pilgrimage there this weekend.  It was Perry's first visit.

According to a report from NBC News and U.S. News and World Report, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, and Marco Rubio have made a combined forty trips to New Hampshire and Iowa.  That's four times more than their Democratic counterparts, which include Vice President Joe Biden and Brian Schweitzer.  Hillary Clinton has not made stops to either state...yet.
