MANCHESTER, N.H. (NBC News / AP) - Watch live results and coverage of the New Hampshire primary as Democratic presidential candidates compete in the second nominating contest of the 2020 election:
Sanders edges Buttigieg in New Hampshire, Dem front-runners
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 Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, beat back a strong challenger 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.
Joe Biden looks to South Carolina to resurrect his campaign
Joe Biden has brought his wounded presidential campaign to South Carolina, staking his hopes for a comeback on the loyalty of black voters after a dismal finish in the New Hampshire primary magnified his disappointing finish in Iowa.
Biden says, “I know this is going to be the fight of my life.”
But the former vice president is promising a vigorous comeback as the primary race moves beyond the overwhelmingly white opening states to Nevada, South Carolina and a Super Tuesday slate where African Americans and Latinos will hold considerable sway.
Patrick says he'll reflect on lackluster showing
Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick says he will “reflect” on his lackluster showing in the New Hampshire primary and will soon “make some decisions” on the future of his Democratic presidential campaign.
Patrick, who entered the race in November, had said that a strong showing in New Hampshire was needed to have a credible shot at winning the nomination. But he trailed far behind the leading contenders in early election returns.
Patrick said Tuesday night: “We needed the winds from New Hampshire at our back to carry us on in this campaign.”
Although the final results are not in, Patrick said he would consult with his wife and “make some decisions” Wednesday morning.
He also lamented media coverage of his campaign, which he said cemented the idea in the minds of potential supporters that he jumped in too late.
Despite being one of the latest Democrats to enter the race, Patrick disputed that he entered too late. But he said “the weight” of skeptical coverage “was in the way.”
Warren says her campaign is just getting started
Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has addressed her New Hampshire supporters without waiting for results in the state’s first-in-the-nation primary.
The Massachusetts senator took the stage at her party near the airport in Manchester barely 20 minutes after polls closed in some areas Tuesday. She spoke for 15 minutes, then had attendees line up for her famous “selfie” line.
Warren said that both Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg had “strong nights” and congratulated her “friend and colleague” Amy Klobuchar for how wrong political pundits are “when they count us out.”
She says Sanders and Buttigieg are “both great candidates.” She says, “I respect them both, but the fight between factions in our party has taken a sharp turn in recent weeks."
Warren calls herself the best candidate to unite the Democratic Party, adding, “The fight we’re in, the fight to save our democracy, is an uphill battle, but our campaign is built for the long haul and we’re just getting started.”
Yang, who created buzz with freedom dividend, ends 2020 bid
Democrat Andrew Yang is suspending his 2020 bid for president.
Yang made the announcement Tuesday after expecting a disappointing finish in New Hampshire's primary.
The 45-year-old entrepreneur created buzz for his presidential campaign by championing a universal basic income that would give every American adult $1,000 per month.
He was one of the breakout stars of the Democratic primary race.
He built a following that started largely online but expanded to give him enough donors and polling numbers to qualify for the first six debates.
He outlasted senators and governors, and after initially self-funding his campaign, he raised more money than most of his rivals.
Bennet ends 2020 bid after poor showing in New Hampshire
Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet is ending his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.
The 55-year-old Bennet ran as a common-sense, just-the-facts moderate during a race in which liberals proposing a huge expansion of government programs grabbed the headlines.
He was a late entrant to the race who staked his bid largely on trying to win New Hampshire.
He only formally announced his candidacy in late April, after completing treatment for prostate cancer. He struggled to stand out in a crowded field dominated by other moderate candidates, including Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar.
