No, Rush Limbaugh's Comments About Buttigieg Are Not Homophobic

Sanders narrowly beats Buttigieg in New Hampshire Democratic primary Joe Biden Skipping New Hampshire Primary, Heading To South Carolina

Senator Bernie Sanders won the party's primary contest on Tuesday in the USA state of New Hampshire.One of the top two winners of the New Hampshire primary usually goes on to become the Democratic candidate for president.

The dueling Democrats represent different generations, see divergent paths to the nomination and embrace conflicting visions of America's future.

Drawing an implicit contrast with Sanders, Buttigieg told his supporters that he is uniquely capable of picking up new allies as the primary goes on.

"This victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump", he said, and promised to build an "unprecedented multi-generational, multi-racial political movement" to defeat the Republican.

Senators Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren followed in third and fourth place respectively, while there was more disappointment for former US Vice President, Joe Biden.


New Hampshire was supposed to provide stage-clearing results in the first Democratic primary after the stunning debacle of the Iowa caucuses last week.

Democrats were looking for a better week after all the chaos in Iowa last week.

But the superdelegates do get to vote in the second ballot, and if it's true that the party leadership consists mostly of moderates, then that doesn't bode well for Sanders (or Warren, if her campaign recovers) if they fail to win a majority of the regular delegates.

Buttigieg and Sanders remain neck and neck in the chaotic Iowa caucuses, where recanvassing is taking place.

Polls closed on Tuesday (February 11) in New Hampshire, and delegates are starting to add up. Deval Patrick, former governor of MA, said Tuesday that he will soon "make some decisions" on the future of his Democratic presidential campaign. He will stake everything on SC, which votes on February 29, and where he has a "firewall" of African-American support. Michael Bloomberg's decision to skip the first four states and focus on Super Tuesday was a gamble, but it might be paying off, Stanage notes at the Hill.


Biden's speech came as votes in New Hampshire's Democratic primary were still being counted.

The goal is to contrast the perception that a New Hampshire loss raises questions about where Warren might win. Yang ended his presidential bid Tuesday night, saying he didn't anticipate receiving the necessary support to win the race.

MrBennet, the Colorado senator, also suspended his campaign. Both states are more diverse than Iowa and New Hampshire, and Biden has long touted his support from minority and black voters. Biden is still hoping that South Carolina's large African-American population will return him to the front of the race.

If you lump together the vote totals for Sanders, Massachusetts Sen.

"He's got an argument that he's still strongest candidate because he's the one that can appeal to African-American voters".


"There are a lot of African-American voters [in South Carolina] and African-American voters in the United States are the base of the Democratic Party".
