After a long haul in New Hampshire, the polls closed at 7:00pm EST. A few minutes later, CNN projects (along with the Associated Press) that Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and real-estate mogul/reality star Donald Trump have won the state’s primaries. A democratic socialist and a billionaire — who would have thought this outcome was possible only a few months ago?
The two Democrats came in with Sanders at 60% and Hillary Clinton at 38%. Clinton has reportedly phoned Sanders to concede New Hampshire. She also arrived for a speech, in which she promised to keep focusing on human rights. She also vowed to “push forward” and take the rest of the nation.
