    As the campaign moves to New Hampshire, Mitt Romney is getting free advice on how to reach blue-collar Republicans from conservative talk radio host Howie Carr, a long-time fixture in New England media and politics who specializes in selling the party of the rich to the white working-class.

    Carr is a veteran columnist for the right-wing tabloid Boston Herald and a perpetual antagonist of Boston's liberal political and cultural establishment. But his influence extends beyond Boston. His talk radio program, one of the top-rated in New England, reaches into southern New Hampshire and runs on other stations, making Carr a factor in the Granite State's quadrennial first-in-the-nation primary. For months, candidates in the upcoming January 10 Republican primary have been eager to get on the air with Carr as a way to reach not only his Boston audience, but also thousands of potential New Hampshire voters who tune into the show in its prime slot in late-afternoon drive time.
