The Republican field of presidential candidates got smaller today. Utah Senator Orrin Hatch pulled the plug on his last-place campaign. The remaining five Republicans will have at it tonight in Manchester, New Hampshire, in a 90-minute debate that could affect the outcome of that state's primary next Tuesday night. After the Republicans are through, the Democrats will have their own hour-long debate from the same site. NPR's Elizabeth Arnold reports from Manchester.
