Biden and Warren, will not get delegates from New Hampshire

Both Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren will not receive delegates from  New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary. It is a stunning result for the candidates who were atop the national polls.

As a rule for all democratic primaries and campaigns, to receive any delegates, candidates should get 15 percent of the vote be it statewide or in one congressional district. However, according to Tuesday night’s returns, Joe Biden received way less than the required amount.

NEW HAMPSHIRE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY LEAD BY SANDERS

Warren, D-Mass., garnered less than 10 percent of votes in the Granite State and appeared to finish in fourth place. Biden, received less than 9 percent of the vote to finish in fifth place. 

Senator Bernie Sanders with nearly 26 percent won the New Hampshire primary and former mayor of South Bend, Ind., Pete Buttingieg secured the second position slightly behind. Senator Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., secured third place garnering roughly 20 percent of the votes. This means, the three of them will collect democratic delegates.

New Hampshire is going to send a total of 24 delegates to the democratic national convention, amounting to only one percent of the total delegates nationwide. (The delegates needed to acquire the nomination is 1,991)

AFTER A DISTANT FINISH IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, BIDEN VOWS A COMEBACK IN SOUTH CAROLINA

Out of all the delegates, 9 are less important called “automatic delegates” who cannot take part in the convention in the first round if none of them have an overwhelming lead. 16 of the delegates are proportionally awarded by the congressional district, and 8 are determined by statewide vote.

Both Senator Biden and Warren vowed to keep fighting  through the primary calendar despite the results. Biden had already left for South Carolina by the time the returns came in foreseeing a poor showing in New Hampshire.  

“We heard from the first 2 of 50 states. Not all the nation. Not half the nation. Not a quarter of the nation. Not 10 percent,” Biden issued a statement at his South Carolina event. “Where I come from, that’s the opening bell, not the closing bell.”

“The fight to end Donald Trump’s presidency is just beginning,” he added.

Meanwhile, Warren urged for unity, while stating “huge turnout” is key for victory.

“If we’re going to beat Donald Trump in November, we are going to need huge turnout within our party. And to get that turnout, we will need a nominee that the broadest coalition of our party feels like they can get behind,” Warren said. “We win when we come together.”
