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.
