Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders(D), and New York Billionaire, Donald Trump(R) were winners in today’s New Hampshire primary. Sanders led with roughly 60% of the Democratic vote, while Trump led with 35% of the Republican vote. These election results show a different political landscape, as compared to the Iowa Caucuses held on Feb. 1 where Ted Cruz(R) and Hilary Clinton(D) were winners and led the pack for each respective party.
Nevada and South Carolina are the next two major primary states. Nevada will hold its primaries on: Feb. 20th for the Democratic Caucus, and Feb. 23rd for the Republican Caucus. South Carolina will hold its primaries on: Feb. 27th for the Democratic Caucus, and Feb. 20th for the South Carolina Caucus.
Candidates will be speaking, holding rallies, and enhancing field operations in Nevada and South Carolina as the primaries draw near in those states. This is still anyone’s election, and both Democrats and Republicans understand that they must grow their bases and work to increase voter turnout. The core groups that both parties must seek to court are seniors, millenials, minorities, and women. These core groups will determine our next president.
