NHDP Statement on Tonight’s FITN Democratic Primary

Manchester, N.H. - After the results of New Hampshire’s First-in-the-Nation primary, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley made the following statement.

“The passion and enthusiasm of Granite State Democrats was on full display in today’s First-in-the-Nation Primary that set records for turnout. Voters across our state demonstrated why New Hampshire continues to hold a special place as the first in the nation primary.”

“I want to congratulate Senator Bernie Sanders on his win here tonight and to commend him and Secretary Hillary Clinton on running tremendous organizations here in the Granite State. Their work here on the ground organizing voters around their commitment to move our country forward has not only moved forward Democratic values in our state, but has helped give New Hampshire Democrats in November a strong foundation from which to build.”

“As the selection process continues in Nevada, South Carolina and beyond, we know that whoever our eventual nominee is, they will be a strong, unifying leader who will continue to build upon the successes of the past seven years.”

“I want to thank the thousands of volunteers and supporters across the Granite State who devoted their time and energy to this election. Your energy and dedication is a credit to New Hampshire and to the Democratic Party—thank you for being a part of this special process and let’s work together through November to elect Democrats up and down the ballot.”
