Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders narrowly beat Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday night; a contest that left former Vice President Joe Biden reeling after a brutal fifth place finish in the Granite State.
With 97% of precincts reporting, Sanders leads Buttigieg 26% to 24%; followed by Amy Klobuchar at 20%, Elizabeth Warren at 9%, and Joe Biden at 8%.
“We love you New Hampshire,” Klobuchar said in her primary night speech. “Because of you, we are taking this campaign to Nevada. We are going to South Carolina. And we are taking this message of unity to the country.”
Senator Amy Klobuchar just gave what sounded like a victory speech tonight.
She told reporters after:
“I'm not bolted to my senate desk anymore and I was able to get out here in New Hampshire and it's made a big difference” she adds, “Imagine what I'll do in Nevada!” pic.twitter.com/cfwQS1MHax

36 HOURS LATER: Iowa Chaos Continues, Results Still Unclear, 71% Reporting, Buttigieg Slightly Ahead of Bernie
Roughly 36 hours after the completion of the Iowa Caucus, just 71% of the results have been released by the Democratic Party; showing South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg slightly ahead of Senator Bernie Sanders.
With less than three quarters of the vote tallied, Pete Buttigieg leads with 26.8% of the state’s delegates, followed by Bernie Sanders with 25.2%, Elizabeth Warren with 18.4%, Joe Biden at 15.4%, and Amy Klobuchar at 12.6%.
As the finger-pointing between Democratic voters, local party officials, and the DNC over the disastrous Iowa Caucus continues, far-left magazine ‘Mother Jones’ found a unique target for the debacle: Mitch McConnell.
With barely any information and zero results released from the Democratic Party, Mother Jones was quick to name the Senate Majority Leader as the true culprit.
“Let’s not forget: Mitch McConnell has steadfastly refused to allow meaningful election security legislation to reach the Senate floor while stymieing most related funding, arguing new laws or mandates would be an overstep of federal power,” posted the progressive magazine on social media.

BIDEN FALLOUT: Iowa Dem Speaks on Physical Confrontation with Biden, Says ‘Shocked’ by ‘Pushing and Poking’
The man at the center of a recent viral video featuring former Vice President Joe Biden spoke out Wednesday; saying he was “shocked” as the candidate “pushed and poked and took hold of my jacket with both hands.”
“After long answers to a handful of pre-arranged questions, Biden invited attendees to come up front for a photo and a brief question,” Ed Fallon wrote on BoldIowa.com.
“Despite his repeated calls for unity, Biden rejects my offer to support him in the general election. That really shocked me. What was even more shocking was how Biden pushed and poked me, and then took hold of my jacket with both hands as he lectured me,” he added.
Former Vice President Joe Biden stunned voters on the campaign trail during a recent speaking event; grabbing a local man by his jacket and poking his chest after being told the Democrat was “voting for someone else” in the primary.
“You gotta go vote for someone else,” Biden told the man. “You’re not going to vote for me in the primary.”
“I’m going to vote you in the general if you treat me right,” responded the Democrat.
“Well, I’m not,” said Biden.
