Bernie Sanders has been projected as the winner of the New Hampshire primary, narrowly defeating Pete Buttigieg to win his first contest in the Democratic primary for President of the United States.

Decision Desk HQ was one of the first elections and polling organizations to call the moderately close election for Sanders. CBS News also called the state for Sanders shortly after 11PM Eastern time.

Sanders had been the favorite in the New Hampshire primary, being a U.S Senator in the neighboring New England state of Vermont.

Indiana corporate Democrat Pete Buttigieg also put on a strong showing, coming in a close second and even appearing to challenge Sanders for first place. As of late Tuesday night Sanders leads Buttigieg by approximately 26% to 24%.

Sanders’ first victory of the year is almost assured to send the establishment wing of the Democratic primary into a panic, as the billionaires that have controlled the party for decades face the prospect of having their wealth confiscated.

Joe Biden appears to be the clear cut ‘loser’ of the primary, being humbled by a showing in which he appears only to have taken a single-digit percentage of the vote. Biden will face serious questions about the viability of his campaign after two straight poor performances in the first two contests, and the Democratic Party’s former frontrunner may be forced to drop out if he fails to secure a strong showing in the South Carolina primary.

Andrew Yang and Michael Bennet also ended their campaigns after failing to catch on in the primary.

Amy Klobuchar was the primary’s dark horse, scoring almost 20% of the vote and over-performing her state polling.

President Donald Trump also won handily against his sole challenger in the Republican Primary, Bill Weld, taking almost 86% of the vote and showing overwhelming support for the ‘MAGA’ agenda within the Republican Party.

The battle for the Democratic nomination appears set to escalate, with a potential two-man race shaping up between Sanders and Buttigieg.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
