Sanders thanks his supporters for handing him easy win in NH
CONCORD - Declared the winner of the Democratic primary in New Hampshire early Tuesday night, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders promptly sent an email letter thanking his supporters.
"We just won the New Hampshire primary," he writes, saying he was about to head downstairs at Concord High School to address his supporters and volunteers.
"....[Y]ou can be certain that our victory tonight will prompt a desperate response from the nation’s financial elite and the political establishment who want to stop our campaign to transform America. Who knows what they're going to throw at us next. All I know is we must be ready to respond, organize, and win," his message continues.
"Nine months ago, if you told somebody that we would win the New Hampshire primary, they would not have believed you. Not at all. Too bold, they would have said. Not enough money to compete against the billionaires. You showed them tonight," he concluded.
