HANOVER, N.H. - US Republican front-runner Mitt Romney largely ignored his presidential rivals at a debate on Tuesday, casting himself as the candidate most suited to rescue the economy and lead the party back to the White House.

At an economic debate that featured harsh criticism of the federal government from his rivals, the former Massachusetts governor touted his real-world experience, defended corporate bailouts and rarely broke a sweat.

"I spent my entire career working in the private sector, starting businesses, helping turn around businesses," he said in the debate at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. "I know how to make tough decisions."

The debate came hours after Romney, who leads the race in opinion polls, won the endorsement of popular New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in a sign the party's establishment was falling in line behind his candidacy.
