Sanders seeks NH win as Democrats cull presidential field
MANCHESTER, N.H. — Polls have closed across New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary election.
The results are already culling the Democratic field. Andrew Yang has dropped out, and so has Michael Bennet. Bernie Sanders was fighting for Democratic front-runner status in the race, while former Mayor Pete Buttigieg was hoping to seize the backing of his party’s establishment with a strong finish. Joe Biden just wanted to avert political disaster as he left the state early. President Donald Trump easily won the Republican primary against token opposition and will take on the Democratic national winner in November.
BREAKING: In New Hampshire Democratic primary, Joe Biden and Sen. Warren will not reach the 15% threshold statewide and in each congressional district, according to the @NBCNews Decision Desk, meaning they will not receive delegates from the #NHprimary. https://t.co/6InPfxQUQs
