With the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary behind him, Mitt Romney, who garnered 40 percent in the Granite State,  is on to the South Carolina primary Jan. 21, where polls put him narrowly in the lead. Should he win in the face of a blistering $3.4 million negative ad campaign, courtesy of a super PAC backing Newt Gingrich, he would be poised to win in Florida Jan. 31 and become the first non-incumbent Republican presidential candidate to sweep the first four primaries.

And that would please Jewish Republicans, analysts say.

Without a Democratic primary fight, the Jews of this fiercely independent state, who number about 10,000, aren’t being courted as heavily as they used to.
