Senator Amy Klobuchar visits New Hampshire polling locations
MANCHESTER, N.H.—Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar stopped at polling locations across New Hampshire on Tuesday for the first in the nation primary.
Klobuchar finished fifth in the Iowa caucus, receiving 12.3% of available state delegates.
The senator said that New Hampshirites want a candidate with moderate views and when asked how she differentiates herself from former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, she says it all comes down to experience.
“I have a lot of respect for Pete, but I know I’ve got the experience,” Klobuchar said. “I actually bring the receipts. I actually won in the red and purple districts. It’s not just talking. I’ve done it over and over again.”
According to CNN, Senator Amy Klobuchar won the most votes after about two dozen New Hampshire residents in three small townships cast their ballots just after midnight.
New Hampshire’s northern tip, Dixville Notch, is home to the first locations to declare primary results because voters hit the polls so early.
Results show that Klobuchar started Tuesday with eight votes, while Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren each had four, entrepreneur Andrew Yang won three, former Vice President Joe Biden, Buttigieg and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg each got two and Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard and businessman Tom Steyer each got one.
