Bernie Sanders Narrowly Declared Winner of New Hampshire Primary

Bernie Sanders narrowly won the New Hampshire primary late Tuesday, putting the left-wing lawmaker on track to claim front-runner status as a couple of his low-polling contenders pulled the plug on their campaigns. 

With 90% of precincts reporting, several major outlets declared Sanders the winner of the first-in-the-nation primary with roughly 26% of the vote, edging out Pete Buttigieg’s runner-up 24%.

“Let me say tonight that this victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” the democratic socialist Vermont senator said to deafening roars at a primary night party in Manchester, New Hampshire.

As Sanders claimed what could end up his second win in a row, two of his long-shot challengers, Andrew Yang and Michael Bennet, dropped out of the race even before the final New Hampshire tally landed.

Yang, a New York-born entrepreneur, and Bennet, a Democratic senator from Colorado, were in eighth and 11th place respectively in the early results with only about 3% of the vote between them. Both have struggled to raise cash or score higher than single digits in most polls.
