Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders Holds NH Primary Night Event In Manchester

Bernie Sanders is projected as the winner of the New Hampshire presidential primary. The Vermont senator beat out former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg – though not by much.

And coming in as a strong third? Someone that very few expected to have any traction: Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar. She finished well ahead of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and former VP Joe Biden. All the candidates spoke – except for Biden, left New Hampshire early for South Carolina, which holds their primary on February 29th.

In the meantime, it’s onto Nevada for Democratic presidential candidates after the New Hampshire primary. Nevada holds caucuses on February 22nd.

As far as the candidate pool, there are two definite losers. Just after New Hampshire's primary polls closed, Andrew Yang called it quits first moments before Michael Bennet followed his lead. Yang businessman built his campaign around a plan to give everyone a monthly check for one-thousand dollars. As for Bennet, the 55-year-old Colorado Senator campaigned on a promise to fix a broken Washington.
