Bernie Sanders Wins New Hampshire Democratic Primary

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) claimed unchallenged control of the Democratic Party’s left wing with a victory in the New Hampshire presidential primary Tuesday as two moderates, Pete Butti­gieg and a newly surging Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), vied for the opposition mantle in a campaign that has been remade over the past eight days.

Sanders and Buttigieg, a former mayor of South Bend, Ind., marked their second straight strong showings — they essentially tied in last week’s Iowa caucuses, with Sanders carrying the popular vote and Buttigieg winning a slight edge in delegates.

“Let me say tonight that this victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” Sanders told his supporters.
