Belva Davis and San Francisco Chronicle senior political writer Carla Marinucci are in New Hampshire with a special report from the campaign trail. The Republican presidential candidates have hit the ground running for the January 10 first in the nation primary, following Mitt Romney's narrow lead over Rick Santorum and Ron Paul in the Iowa caucuses. Gov. Jerry Brown released his 2012-13 fiscal year budget proposal ahead of schedule after the document was accidentally posted online. The budget was to be unveiled on Tuesday, the constitutional deadline. It includes more than $1 billion in cuts to welfare programs. Brown will also ask voters for $5 billion in education funding with a November tax measure. It's another fork in the road for California's $99 billion high-speed rail project. A key independent review panel recommended that billions of dollars of voter approved bonds should not be approved by lawmakers. They say the funding isn't secure and the business plan has not been finalized.
