Sanders gains momentum in New Hampshire, as Democrats focus on campaigns in Nevada, South Carolina

The New Hampshire primary provided new clarity to the Democratic presidential race.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders scored his first clear victory in Tuesday’s election.

The self-described Democratic socialist edged out his moderate rival, former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg, who just last week narrowly came on top in the Iowa caucuses.

The vote cements the frontrunner status -of the two aspirants who represent different generations and ideologies.

Aside from the two, the campaign of Minnesota senator Amy Klobuchar also received its much- needed boost after pulling off an unexpected third-place finish in the granite state.

Klobuchar — who was lagging in pre-election surveys, rode a wave momentum from last week’s debate.

Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden, previously perceived as frontrunners, fell short of the threshold percentage of votes to win any delegates.

They now turn their focus to upcoming caucuses and primaries.
