GOFFSTOWN, N.H., - Republican rivals tried to knock front-runner Mitt Romney off his pedestal by questioning his record as a business executive on Saturday at a high-stakes debate days before the key New Hampshire primary election.

Conservatives Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich wasted little time in attacking Romney at an ABC News debate, seeking to stop the former Massachusetts governor from running away with New Hampshire and possibly getting set to win the Republican nomination to run for US president in November's election.

At the first of twin debates within 12 hours of each other, Romney calmly fended off his attackers and quietly let them squabble among themselves in a sign he was trying to appear statesman-like and the inevitable winner.

For the most part, Romney kept his sights on Democratic President Barack Obama's handling of the US economy and foreign policy and attempted to make no mistakes that would endanger his lead.
