February is not a month to sleep in the city of Washington, D.C. Thus far, the Iowa Caucuses have taken a number of headlines as the Democratic National Committee tries to sort things out. Then, the United States Senate moved to acquit Donald Trump after he was impeached by the United States House of Representatives last month. Most recently, the top candidates headed out to New Hampshire for the ABC News Debate. Continuing their run in New Hampshire, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg and others look to take the next step forward.
Ahead of the South Carolina primaries, New Hampshire held their annual “First-In-The-Nation” Primary. With 97% of the precincts reporting, the Associated Press has shown that Senator Bernie Sanders has been declared the presumptive winner. Sanders earned 25.7% of the vote with nine delegates. Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg tied Sanders with nine delegates and 24.4% of the vote. In third, Senator Amy Klobuchar earned six delegates and 19.8% of the vote. Surprisingly, Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren walked away with no delegates and less than 30,000 votes.
New Hampshire’s results will lead in to the South Carolina Primary at the end of the month. Kicking off the month of March, fifteen states will participate in “Super Tuesday” as the election cycle goes into full gear. Check out the preliminary results above and stay tuned for more information moving forward.
