Bernie Sanders wins New Hampshire primary
February 12, 2020 - Bernie Sanders has won New Hampshire’s Democratic primary, narrowly beating centrist former mayor Pete Buttigieg. Former vice-president Joe Biden finished a disappointing fifth.
Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who narrowly edged out Sanders in last week’s messy Iowa caucuses, came in a close second, after splitting much of the centrist vote with Senator Amy Klobuchar.
The results provided no clear answers for Democrats trying to decide whether their best choice to challenge Trump would be a moderate like Buttigieg, Klobuchar or Biden, or a progressive like Sanders and Warren, who represents neighbouring Massachusetts.
