New Hampshire primary: Bernie Sanders wins

  • Bernie Sanders has won the New Hampshire primary
  • Pete Buttigieg was second, Amy Klobuchar third
  • Joe Biden limped home in fifth

Bernie Sanders strengthened his front-runner status in the race for the Democratic nomination with a narrow win in New Hampshire, dealing a setback to moderate Joe Biden as attention shifts to the next contests in the state-by-state process.

Pete Buttigieg, the moderate former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, built on his momentum with a close second-place finish after splitting much of the centrist vote with Senator Amy Klobuchar, who placed third after surging over the past few days.

The focus of the campaign to pick a Democrat to challenge Republican President Donald Trump in November begins to shift on Wednesday to states more demographically diverse than the largely white and rural kick-off states of Iowa and New Hampshire.

“This victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” Sanders told supporters in Manchester, New Hampshire late Tuesday.

Sanders had 26% of the vote and Buttigieg had 24% with more than 91 percent of precincts reporting. Klobuchar had 20%, Warren 9% and Biden 8%.
