Bernie Sanders wins with Buttigieg, Klobuchar right behind

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders edged former South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttigieg in New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary Tuesday, a closer-than-expected finish that leaves the race for the Democratic presidential nomination still muddled.

Sanders topped Buttigieg by about a point when the Associated Press declared him the winner just before midnight. Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar came in a surprising third, a finish that built on her well-received performance at Friday’s debate in New Hampshire.

That could keep the race for the Democratic nominee more unsettled than it often is after the first two contests.Five candidates have at least six national delegates, lead by Buttigieg and Sanders.

Sanders’ victory was not by the 22-point margin that jolted the race against eventual nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016, when he played the role of upstart challenger.

But he didn’t stumble either, winning a neighboring state over a large field after leading in almost every poll over the past two months as his rival for the progressive wing of the party – Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren – slowly faded. 

“At this point of the campaign, we are taking on billionaires and we are taking on candidates who are funded by billionaires, but we are going to win because we have the agenda that speaks to the working people of this country,” Sanders said to the crowd at his election night party shortly after 11 p.m.
