US Election Special — live!

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Beginning with the Iowa caucus, The Royal Gazette in conjunction with The Washington Post News Service and Bloomberg News will live-stream the major events during this election year.

Voters will head to the polls on Tuesday in New Hampshire, potentially narrowing the Democratic presidential field. Since the Iowa caucuses last week, candidates have spent most of their time campaigning in New Hampshire before the primary.

The Washington Post's Libby Casey hosts live coverage from New Hampshire, with news and analysis from Post reporters in New Hampshire and Washington. The Post will bring you the latest results and put them in context as America heads into a very busy couple of weeks in the race for the White House.

Heading into the primary, the top four Democratic contenders are former South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, the independent senator from Vermont, former vice-president Joe Biden, and Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic senator from Massachusetts.

New Hampshire is 92 per cent white and the least racially diverse of the early states, with most of its black, Latino and Asian voters concentrated in a few mid-sized cities. In 2016, Sanders won by a landslide, but according to polling, no 2020 candidate has built a lead outside the margin of error since July.

Also competing in the state are Amy Klobuchar, the senator from Minnesota who left the Iowa caucuses with a national delegate; entrepreneur Andrew Yang; billionaire activist Tom Steyer; Michael F. Bennet, the senator from Colorado; representative Tulsi Gabbard, of Hawaii; and former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick.
