On the heels of last night’s results in Iowa many of the candidates hopped a flight to New Hampshire where they are preparing for the next battle. FOX news senior national correspondent John Roberts has more from New Hampshire.
The GOP winner of the Iowa caucus Senator Ted Cruz is wasting no time. Pushing past frontrunner Donald Trump, Cruz is hoping to build on the momentum created from his win.
“Y’all treat politics in New Hampshire like we treat football in Texas. You understand that there are millions of Americans counting on you to vet the candidates.”
While Governor Mike Huckabee dropped out of the race, others like New Jersey governor Chris Christie, who didn’t fare so well aren’t ready to call it quits just yet.
“I don’t want to be your top 3 anymore, I want to be your top 1.”
But in Iowa, Christie didn’t even make it into the top three, placing tenth in a crowded field. The number three spot instead went to junior senator Marco Rubio, who earlier today received a key endorsement from South Carolina senator Tim Scott.
“I’m putting my confidence and my trust in Marco Rubio.”
On the democratic side, a winner has finally been declared. At first too close to call, it turns out Hillary Clinton beat Bernie Sanders in what is being called the closest caucus in history.
“I am so thrilled that I am coming to New Hampshire after winning Iowa.”
“Now in New Hampshire were going to astound the world again.”
Clinton faces an even tougher fight next week in New Hampshire, where Vermont senator Bernie Sanders holds a double-digit lead in the polls
