(Updated Feb. 1 at 11:30 a.m.) With 292 of 301 precincts (97.01%) reporting, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (75,690 votes/25.7%) has been declared winner in the New Hampshire Democratic Primary.
“Tonight New Hampshire sent a message that working people are ready for a political revolution in this country. This is what it will take to defeat Donald Trump,” said Sanders. “This victory isn’t about me; it’s about us. Tonight is about what our supporters, volunteers and grassroots donors built in New Hampshire.”
Former South Bend, IN, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (71,999 votes/24.44%) and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar (58,376 votes/19.82%) finished close behind and will both also receive delegates from New Hampshire heading to the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee.
Buttigieg congratulated all of the candidates in the Democratic field as well as all of the candidates’ supporters and also once again indirectly cast himself as a more pragmatic choice to Sanders.
“We have been told by some that you’re either for revolution or the status quo,” said Buttigieg. “But you can’t take on the most dangerous president in U.S. history by discarding those who don’t agree with you 100 percent of the time.”
It was a disappointing night for Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (27,181 votes/9.23%), who now faces an uncertain path forward, but believes she is prepared for the long haul.
“We might be headed for another one of those long primary fights that lasts for months. We’re two states in, with 55 states and territories to go,” she said to a crowd in Manchester. “We still have 98 [ercent of the delegates for our nomination up for grabs, and Americans in every part of our country are going to make their voices heard.”
It was also a disappointing evening for Vice President Joe Biden (24,800 votes/8.42%), with Biden leaving for South Carolina prior to the closure of polls in New Hampshire.
On the Republican side, President Donald Trump was declared the winner early in the night, winning all of New Hampshire’s 19 delegates to the GOP National Convention in Charlotte, with NH GOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek endorsing him during an event in Bedford.
At approximately 7:45 p.m., Andrew Yang announced is suspending his campaign.
In announcing his decision to suspend his campaign, Andrew Yang “the math guy” spoke to supporters about his accomplishments, including a message of “humanity first.” But he said he has also done the math he saw the way forward did not add up for him.
Yang said he was proud that his campaign shifted the national conversation to the “fourth industrial revolution” and introduced the idea of a universal basic income into the mainstream conversation.
Approximately one hour later, U.S. Senator Michael Bennet announced that he will also suspend his campaign, earning less than one percent of total votes cast with 33 percent tabulated.
Bennet bet everything on New Hampshire, spending Iowa Caucus day in the Granite State.
“Tonight is not going to be our night, but let me say this to New Hampshire, you may see me once again,” said Bennet.
Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick also has indicated that he will “reflect” on his anemic performance, and possibly drop out of the race this week.
