    Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire After Iowa Caucus

    (Published Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2016)

    With a celebrity introduction by Hollywood actress Eliza Dushku and a crowd of more than a thousand people in Keene, New Hampshire, supporters say Bernie Sanders has more momentum than ever coming off a virtual tie with Hillary Clinton in Iowa.

    "This is my first political rally ever, the first time I have ever felt strongly enough about a candidate to really come out and support him," said Keene resident Patrick Harron.

    Sanders, who finished less than a half a percentage point behind Clinton in the caucuses says it's proof a political revolution is underway.

    "We started off in that state depending on the poll 40, 50, 60 points behind, with no money, no political organization, and no name recognition, and we fought Secretary Clinton to a virtual tie," Sanders told reporters Tuesday.

    The former Secretary of State was in Nashua Tuesday relishing in her Monday night victory.

    "I am so thrilled that I am coming to New Hampshire after winning Iowa," Clinton told a crowd of screaming supporters.

    In New Hampshire, Clinton trails Sanders by more than twenty percentage points according to the most recent CNN poll.
     
    When NECN's Alison King asked Clinton if she thinks she can win New Hampshire, she replied, "I'm going to make my case and hope I can do very well next Tuesday."

    With the First in the Nation Primary just one week away, voters say picking our next president is their very first priority.

    "People are skipping out of work, they're playing hooky, it's really great...it's such an exciting place to live," said Marcia Kayser of Keene.

    Sanders told reporters Tuesday evening that he is not ready to concede the race in Iowa. He says his team is taking a closer look at the numbers.
