Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and former Vice-President, Joe Biden, the are of New Hampshire serious questions about the future of their campaigns.


“We love you in New Hampshire,” Klobuchar said in her primary night speech. “Because of you, we have this campaign take to Nevada. We go to South Carolina. And we take this message of the unity of the country.”

Klobuchar – who comes from Iowa’s neighbor to the North finished a distant fifth in last week’s Iowa Caucasus. But a strong presidential primary debate performance on Friday, seemingly pumped up her assets and gave her a big bounce, as she climbed the last tracking polls over the weekend. The senator was obviously able to benefit you in your last-minute momentum.

“Man, are we that we noticed in the debate in New Hampshire,” she said in her primary night speech.

And speaking with reporters after her address — Klobuchar predicted that “we are on the rise. This is just the beginning.. Imagine what will we do in Nevada.”

Exit polls suggest that the older and higher educated voters, and the moderates and those who unite for a candidate to the country, reinforced Klobuchar performance.

Veteran New Hampshire political scientist Wayne Lesperance said that Klobuchar is ready, stole the headlines.

“While most of the attention this week was on Sanders and Buttigieg, the big story out of New Hampshire can only Amy Klobuchar of 3. Place finish,” said Lesperance, vice president of academic affairs at New England College.

“With a lot less national attention, resources, ads, and celebrity endorsements, Klobuchar is the way to granite campaigned expect Stater – a lot of Shoe-leather retail politics. And with this approach, you beat a former top riders such as Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren. It is not difficult to conclude, New Hampshire, has a new comeback kid.”

Biden headed South on Tuesday, to fly to South Carolina before the polls closed in New Hampshire. The former Vice-President skip has visited on his primary night celebration in the granite state, which was only sparsely. But he told the audience, in a speech, which was switched on, the “we’ll be back in New Hampshire, we will be back in General.”

To leave, the abrupt decision of the state early was an overwhelming step for a candidate who had at the end of last year, vowed he would win in New Hampshire. But for a week, Biden and his campaign played to expectations in the first primary state had shut down.

Nevada and South Carolina, New Hampshire to follow – this is a predominantly white state in the presidential nomination calendar. Biden’s campaign has long as Nevada and South Carolina – with their far more different voters – such as much friendlier ground for the former Vice-President. And as you pointed out, South Carolina – with a majority of black voters in the Democratic presidential primary – how your firewall.

Biden at a campaign kick-off Tuesday evening in Columbia, South Carolina, played down the results in Iowa and New Hampshire.

“It is important that Iowa and Nevada have spoken, but, look, we need to hear from Nevada and South Carolina and Super Tuesday and beyond,” Biden said to a crowd of supporters.

President Trump re ‘ s-election campaign quickly illuminated Biden’s miserable finish in the primary, write in an E-Mail to reporters with the title “Joe Biden Predicted, He will Win New Hampshire Would. He Just Beat Like a drum Again…. A crazy socialist, and a former small town mayor, only the former VP crushed”

Warren acknowledged your disappointing end, but told supporters on Tuesday night that “our campaign is built for the long haul,” and that “we have just begun.”

Veteran democratic strategist Michael Ceraso said that the Warren campaign post-game spin, the losses in Iowa and New Hampshire temporary setbacks. You are looking for, to establish, what the history has taught us that lose early material margins is very difficult to overcome.”

And Ceraso – a veteran of 2016, the Sanders campaign said has served as a Buttigieg, New Hampshire state Director before parting ways with the campaign last summer, “Biden’s team has been through the campaign of movements in Iowa and New Hampshire, and the results are disastrous for Biden. His team is not on Obama nostalgia, it works through the next phase and I see it.”

He stressed that “a fifth place in New Hampshire provides a huge crack through Biden’s electability argument, leads me to believe that the voters are asking themselves, “who is Biden is the true alternative to?”

Sanders thanked “the people of New Hampshire for a great victory tonight.”

For the populist senator – it was the second straight victory in the New Hampshire primary after his 2016 shredding of the possible candidacy of Hillary Clinton.

While Sanders did not exceed expectations, Democratic operative Chris Moyer stressed that “a victory is a victory and he is happy to win this and move on to demand, the success of the first two States.”

He and his team feel pretty good, even if the margins are not as big as you’d like,” added Moyer, a veteran of the Clinton 2016 campaign, and Sen. Cory Booker from New Jersey’s 2020 presidential bid.

Buttigieg – once the longest of long shots, as he declared his candidacy a year ago, told his followers that “a campaign, say some, that should not be here at all has shown that we are here to stay.”

And indirect target in the case of Sanders, not he argues that the policy of “my way or the highway” is the path to the defeat of President Trump.

Moyer said the did Buttigieg “, what he had to do, in these first two States,” but emphasized that “the challenge for him now is that the race moved to Nevada and South Carolina, and beyond, as he improved his support from voters of color…His mission is to expand his coalition.”
