Bernie Sanders projected winner of New Hampshire primary
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Bernie Sanders won New Hampshire’s presidential primary election Tuesday night, narrowly edging moderate rival Pete Buttigieg and scoring the first clear victory in the Democratic Party’s chaotic 2020 nomination fight.
In his win, the 78-year-old Sen. Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, beat back a strong challenge from the 38-year-old former Midwestern mayor — two men representing different generations and wings of their party.
“This victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” Sanders declared. Trump easily won the state’s Republican primary against token opposition. Sen. Amy Klobuchar finished a strong third in the Democratic contest with Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden far behind.
