Three days after New Hampshire's primary, former speaker Newt Gingrich and former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum are still separated by just a handful of votes behind the three leaders as vote verification continues.

The Associated Press election night count of all 301 precincts had Gingrich ahead of Santorum by 49 votes. The secretary of state's tally as of yesterday had Santorum ahead by 117. But three New Hampshire town officials say the state has their numbers wrong. Changes in the state count for those three towns would drop Santorum's lead to 16 votes.
