The Latest Sanders NH win would put me on nomination path
CONCORD, N.H. — The latest on campaigning for the 2020 election (all times local):
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders says a victory in the New Hampshire primary would put him on a path to capture the Democratic presidential nomination.
Sanders told a crowd at a college on Monday that he believes he has a strong chance of victory here as well as in the states that come next: Nevada, South Carolina and California.
“Not only is the whole country looking at New Hampshire tomorrow, but the world is looking at New Hampshire,” Sanders said. “What is New Hampshire going to do?”
Sanders says he’s hoping for the largest voter turnout in the history of the primary. Turnout in the Iowa caucuses was lower than expected.
It’s a different message than former Vice President Joe Biden is spreading. Biden and his campaign are downplaying the importance of victory in New Hampshire, saying that Biden will perform strongly in the next contests regardless. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign has also declined to set expectations of victory.
Sanders is spending the final day before the primary visiting two college campuses and speaking to volunteers. He’ll close out the day with a concert featuring the band The Strokes.
