What Is The New Hampshire Primary and Why Does It Matter?

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez speaks to the audience ahead of the Democratic presidential primary debate at Loyola Marymount University Pete Buttigieg holds narrow lead in Iowa as counting nears completion

Biden has long touted his ability to help secure wins for down-ballot Democrats, citing his time on the trail during the 2018 midterms, and the half-dozen endorsements his 2020 campaign has received from freshman members of the House in districts that flipped from red to blue.

Iowa state auditor Rob Sand told NBC that he was taking calls that night and said, "A lot of calls came in at a certain point where it was clear somebody had published the hotline number somewhere".

It's unclear when the remaining results will be released.

JOE BIDEN: Hello, hello, hello.

Around 97% of the state's precincts have reported their results so far, but it is unclear when the rest of the results will be released.


At a fundraiser Wednesday night in Manhattan's Flatiron District, Buttigieg touted his narrow lead in the Iowa caucus.

The race in Iowa remains a stunner for Buttigieg, who seemed to suck all the oxygen in the room from Biden during the caucus process.

What the Biden campaign is eager to say is the impeachment trial didn't harm the former vice president at all.

With 62% of results in, Buttigieg has about 27% of the State Delegate Equivalent count, with Sanders close behind with 25% of delegate support.

"Demographically, it's not reflective of the U.S.as a whole, certainly not reflective of the Democratic Party, and I believe other states should have their chance", Castro said. Buttigieg's strong Iowa showing will also make him a factor here. Relatively low turnout and Donald Trump's improving ratings should be big concerns for the Democrats.


Despite this, the state can offer crucial momentum that will send the candidates on to the next vote in good stead. Buttigieg said states like Iowa and New Hampshire force candidates to "actually have human contact" with voters.

January was the Sanders campaign's best fundraising month to date, featuring donations from 648,000 people, including 219,000 new donors, the statement said.

"The Democrats, they can't count some simple votes, and yet they want to take over your health care system", he said.

Young voters are going to play a key role in the 2020 election and according to our exclusive 7NEWS/EMERSON COLLEGE NEW HAMPSHIRE TRACKING POLL, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is dominating the 18 to 29-year-old vote, commanding 53 percent of potential primary participants. She told me this was the first campaign event she'd ever been to because no politician had ever affected her like Bernie Sanders.

On Monday, some of Buttigieg's major donors were glued to their phones frantically texting each other as precinct results came in - a sign that some of his top supporters knew the stakes of the Buttigieg placing competitively in Iowa. "It's a tiny, tiny fraction of a tiny, tiny state so I wouldn't put any emphasis on the satellite vote just because it's so small".
