MANCHESTER, N.H. â€” The latest on developments in the Iowa caucuses and the follow-up New Hampshire primary (all times local):
Donald Trump says he didnâ€™t have much of a ground game in Iowa â€” after months of his campaign touting its operation in the state.
Trump tells Fox News Channelâ€™s Sean Hannity that his campaign â€œdidnâ€™t have much of a ground game because I didnâ€™t think I was going to be winning.â€
He says that, â€œin retrospect, we could have done much better with the ground game.â€
The comments are an apparent slight to Trumpâ€™s Iowa state director Chuck Laudner.
Laudner had said in January he felt â€œfantastic about the ground game.â€
Donald Trump says his decision to skip the last GOP debate before the Iowa caucuses may have contributed to his second-place finish.
But the billionaire businessman says heâ€™d do it the same if he had to do it again.
Trump finished second to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in Monday eveningâ€™s contest after placing first in multiple polls.
He skipped the debate because of a spat with Fox News and instead held a fundraiser for veterans that raised $6 million.
Trump says he â€œwould never, ever give that up to go between first and second in Iowa.â€
Jeb Bushâ€™s presidential campaign is unveiling a new two-minute television ad directed at billionaire businessman Donald Trump.
The campaign says the â€œTurn Off Trumpâ€ ad first appeared Tuesday on Manchester, New Hampshire station WMUR-TV.
The Bush campaign says the ad draws a contrast between Trumpâ€™s â€œliberal positions and his divisive and disparaging comments about women, war heroes, minorities and the disabled, and Jebâ€™s proven leadership skills.â€
Republican Donald Trump is predicting heâ€™ll win over voters from Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Trump says Sanders supporters are â€œvery much into the trade world and Iâ€™m the best on trade.â€
He says Sanders â€œmentionsâ€ the issue, â€œbut I donâ€™t think heâ€™s going to be capable of doing anything about it.â€
Trump sounded as confident as ever addressing reporters in New Hampshire ahead of a Tuesday evening rally in Milford, New Hampshire.
He says he expects to do better than his second-place finish in Iowa.
He says New Hampshire â€œfits me better, it probably suits me better.â€
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has raised about $3 million in the past 24 hours since his narrow loss to Hillary Clinton in Mondayâ€™s leadoff Iowa caucuses.
Sandersâ€™ campaign says the total is the most money it has raised in a single day during the senatorâ€™s presidential campaign.
Sanders raised $20 million in January, with most of it coming online.
He holds a solid lead against Clinton in next weekâ€™s New Hampshire primary.
Donald Trump is blaming the press for framing his second-place finish in Iowa on Monday evening as a loss.
Trump is telling a crowd of thousands in Milford, New Hampshire, Tuesday evening that heâ€™s not disappointed he placed behind rival Ted Cruz in a state where few thought heâ€™d do well.
He says, â€œI come in second, Iâ€™m not humiliated.â€
Trump had systematically raised expectations ahead of Monday eveningâ€™s caucuses, telling audiences he expected a win.
But now he says, â€œThe press didnâ€™t treat me right.â€
He says the media refuses to say he did an â€œunbelievable job,â€ instead reporting: â€œWell, yeah, he did all right. A little disappointed. You know, third place was fantastic.â€
The Jeb Bush campaign says former first lady Barbara Bush is joining her son on the campaign trail in New Hampshire.
The campaign says Barbara Bush will be with Jeb Bush at his scheduled town hall Thursday night at a middle school in Derry.
She will also be with him Friday, according to the campaign. Jeb Bush is betting big on a win in New Hampshire following a poor showing in the Iowa caucus.
Donald Trump is rallying volunteers at his New Hampshire campaign headquarters in Manchester.
Trump says heâ€™s confident heâ€™ll win the next round of voting, on Feb. 9. He says â€œsomething specialâ€™s happeningâ€ in New Hampshire, where he leads substantially in polls.
But there was a reminder of his loss Monday to Ted Cruz in Iowa when one volunteer called out, â€œWeâ€™re going to fix Iowaâ€™s mistake.â€
Trump says he performed much better than pundits expected when he first entered the race.
He responded: â€œI think now weâ€™re going to go first, youâ€™re right. Itâ€™s going to be great.â€
He was joined at the stop by former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump couldnâ€™t deliver enough evangelical votes to nip Ted Cruz in the Iowa presidential caucuses.
Thatâ€™s according to polls of Iowans interviewed for the Associated Press and other media as they entered caucus sites Monday.
The billionaire businessman also trailed among voters who made their choice late, and among those who said they want a candidate who shares their values.
The results suggest Trump needs to improve his turnout operation and his ability to persuade undecided voters as the GOP nominating contest moves forward into New Hampshire.
Trump did defeat Cruz by more than a 2-to-1 margin among voters who want an outsider. But Cruz and fellow senator Marco Rubio crushed Trump among voters who want someone with political experience.
Jeb Bush is going after the top three finishers in Monday nightâ€™s Iowa caucuses in New Hampshire.
He says Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio are â€œuntestedâ€ and do not have the experience to handle the Oval Office job.
He was especially critical of Trump, saying the billionaire businessman â€œdisparagesâ€ and â€œinsultsâ€ people during the campaign because heâ€™s â€œa man with deep insecurities.â€
Bush made his comments at New England College in Henniker, N.H., one of four events in the state that holds the nationâ€™s first primary Feb. 9.
He was especially critical of Trump, saying the billionaire businessman is â€œa man with deep insecurities.â€
South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott says heâ€™s endorsing Marco Rubio for president because he believes the Florida senator is best positioned to handle the nationâ€™s economy and military.
Scott, told reporters in Washington Tuesday that he likes Rubioâ€™s priorities: â€œHeâ€™s a better father and a better husband than he is a politician.â€
Chris Christie said he might have a job if his campaign for president doesnâ€™t work out.
He described for an audience at Saint Anselm College sending a recent text to rocker Jon Bon Jovi complaining about the cold weather in Iowa. Christie says the singer responded by telling him to come home to New Jersey.
Christie says Bon Jovi advised him: â€œThe job playing tambourine in the band is still open.â€
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is hailing his razor-thin finish in Iowa against Hillary Clinton, telling supporters in New Hampshire that his campaign â€œtook on the most powerful political organization in this country.â€
Sanders is telling more than 1,100 supporters in Keene, New Hampshire, that his campaign came back from a 50 percent point deficit in the polls and â€œbegan the political revolution not just in Iowa, not just in New Hampshire but all over this country.â€
Sanders says his campaign is â€œnot about spin, itâ€™s not about 30 second ads. Itâ€™s about the American people.â€
Republican Marco Rubio says rival Chris Christieâ€™s dismissal of him as unprepared to lead the nation is a sign that the Florida senator is a threat to the New Jersey governor in the GOP nomination fight.
During an interview with CNN, Rubio says â€œWhen people attack you, usually they donâ€™t attack someone who isnâ€™t doing well.â€
Rubio nearly beat billionaire Donald Trump for second place in the Iowa caucuses Monday night. Christie finished near the bottom of the crowded GOP field, but has focused his campaign on a strong finish in New Hampshire.
Both landed in New Hampshire with brutal media schedules, determined to spend the week before the Feb. 9 primary wooing voters.
South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn says the Congressional Black Caucus political action committee will endorse a candidate in the presidential race after the New Hampshire primary Feb. 9.
Clyburn is not saying whether the caucus PAC will opt for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders in the Democratic contest, but he noted that some CBC members have campaigned on Clintonâ€™s behalf.
Clyburn says, â€œI donâ€™t think they are wasting their time.â€ Heâ€™s predicting that the endorsement will have an effect on the contest for the Democratic presidential nomination heading into South Carolinaâ€™s Feb. 27 primary. Other contests follow in Southern states where African-Americans make up considerable portions of Democratic primary electorates.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says rival Ted Cruzâ€™s Iowa victory speech is like Howard Deanâ€™s infamous 2004 scream.
Trump is tweeting, â€œAnybody who watched all of Ted Cruzâ€™s far too long, rambling, overly flamboyant speech last night would say that was his Howard Dean moment!â€
Dean finished in third place in the 2004 caucuses and delivered a shouting speech that included an awkward yelp.
The moment was played again and again on the news and late-night television.
Trump has been lashing out on Twitter over how the race is being portrayed. And heâ€™s blaming voters for not giving him enough credit for self-funding his campaign.
Trump has received millions of dollars in contributions. His latest campaign finance filing shows he is now spending more of his own money than donorsâ€™.
South Carolina congressman Jeff Duncan says heâ€™s endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz for president because the Texas senator has â€œa history of following throughâ€ on his word.
A tea party favorite like Cruz, Duncan is scheduled to appear alongside the Texas senator at a Tuesday evening rally in the state.
Duncan represents one of the most conservative districts in South Carolina. His fellow South Carolina congressman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, has lined up with Marco Rubio, who also added South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott earlier Tuesday.
Rubio, Cruz and Donald Trump are expected to continue their three-way tussle in South Carolina. Trumpâ€™s most high-profile backer among South Carolina politicians is the lieutenant governor, Henry McMaster.
Gov. Nikki Haley has yet to endorse a candidate in the race.
Donald Trumpâ€™s campaign spokeswoman confirms that former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown will endorse the billionaire developer at rally in New Hampshire Tuesday night.
Brownâ€™s backing marks Trumpâ€™s first endorsements by a current or former senator and provides additional evidence that some in the Republican establishment are beginning to warm to a potential candidacy.
Trump is returning to New Hampshire Tuesday after coming in second to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in Monday nightâ€™s Iowa caucuses.
The news was first reported by The Washington Post.
Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is lashing out at Marco Rubio and Donald Trump on immigration while facing New Hampshire voters for the first time since his Iowa caucus victory.
Cruz charged that Rubio led the fight for â€œamnestyâ€ for immigrants in the country illegally. He also said Trump didnâ€™t do anything to fight immigration reform as the debate raged on Capitol Hill in 2013.
The first-term Texas senator made the comments during a campaign appearance in Windham, N.H., hours after he scored a victory in Iowaâ€™s leadoff caucuses. Trump finished second and Rubio third.
Cruzâ€™s team aggressively attacked Rubio in television ads across Iowa in recent days as â€œthe Republican Obama.â€
Hillary Clinton says she has â€œsome work to doâ€ to attract young and first-time voters to her campaign for president.
She says in an interview on CNNâ€™s â€œSituation Roomâ€ that sheâ€™s pleased that so many young people are participating this year in the Democratic nominating contest and recognizes that rival Bernie Sanders did well among that group in Mondayâ€™s razor-thin Iowa caucuses.
Clinton says that in next-up New Hampshire and beyond, sheâ€™ll be emphasizing her plans to help young people start their lives, including a proposal to make college more affordable.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest is congratulating Hillary Clinton on her win in Iowa â€” and predicting more tough competition in the contests ahead.
Ernest got word of Clintonâ€™s victory in the close Iowa caucuses during his daily briefing.
He noted a â€œspirited and close raceâ€ between President Barack Obamaâ€™s former secretary of state and rival Bernie Sanders and added, â€œI suspect itâ€™s not the last state where weâ€™ll hear that.â€
He said Clinton, who lost the nomination race to Obama in 2008, knows better than anybody that the â€œthe path to the Democratic nomination is a long one.â€
There is still one Republican delegate left to be awarded in Iowa, but it wonâ€™t determine the winner. It might even go to a candidate who suspended his campaign Monday night.
Ted Cruzâ€™s victory means heâ€™ll collect eight delegates to the Republican National Convention.
Donald Trump and Marco Rubio each get seven.
Coming next is Ben Carson with three, followed by Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina and John Kasich, who won one each.
Delegates are awarded in proportion to the statewide vote.
Mike Huckabee and Chris Christie are in a tight race for the last delegate, which should be awarded when the Iowa GOP verifies the results later this week.
Huckabee suspended his campaign but he would keep his delegate under Iowa GOP rules.
Former President Bill Clinton says heâ€™s satisfied with his wifeâ€™s narrow victory in Iowa, casting the state as difficult political terrain.
â€œItâ€™s hard there,â€ he said, in an interview after an event in Nashua. â€œIt was a jump ball and Iâ€™m glad it came down on our side of the coin.â€
Iowa and New Hampshire, he says, are â€œtwo of the most challenging placesâ€ for Clintonâ€™s presidential campaign. Though she won New Hampshire eight years ago, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has long represented the bordering state of Vermont, making him a familiar figure to voters.
Clinton is kicking off her final week of campaigning in New Hampshire on Tuesday.
Hillary Clintonâ€™s victory in the Iowa Democratic caucuses means she will collect 23 delegates and Sen. Bernie Sanders will win 21.
With her advantage in superdelegates â€” the party officials who can support the candidate of their choice â€” Clinton now has a total of 385 delegates. Sanders has 29.
It takes 2,382 delegates to win the Democratic nomination for president.
Hillary Clinton has narrowly won the Democratic caucuses in Iowa, outpacing a surprisingly strong challenge from Bernie Sanders to claim the first victory in the 2016 race for president.
The former secretary of state, senator from New York and first lady edged past the Vermont senator in a race the Iowa Democratic Party called the closest in its caucus history.
The Iowa Democratic Party said Tuesday that it would not do any recount of the close results, and a spokesman for the Sanders campaign said it does not intend to challenge the results of the caucuses.
Hillary Clinton is declaring victory in Iowa, even though rival Democrat Bernie Sanders has not yet conceded the race.
She says she is â€œso proud I am coming to New Hampshire after winning Iowaâ€ and adds, â€œIâ€™ve won and Iâ€™ve lost there and itâ€™s a lot better to win.â€
Clinton arrived in New Hampshire early Tuesday.
Her campaign is trying to spin a neck-and-neck race into a win, hoping to gain momentum heading into the first primary contest.
Bernie Sanders has picked up support of a veteran black lawmaker in South Carolina as he tries to close the gap on Hillary Clinton ahead of the Feb. 27 Democratic primary.
State Rep. Joseph Neal says he â€œthinks a lotâ€ of Hillary Clinton. But he says that Sandersâ€™ proposals to narrow income inequality and overhaul the criminal justice system are â€œhead and shouldersâ€ above Clintonâ€™s.
Clinton will counter Sandersâ€™ recent endorsement push with her own heavy hitter: Former President Bill Clinton will campaign in Columbia on Wednesday.
Hillary Clintonâ€™s top ranking supporter on Capitol Hill says the differences between supporters of the former secretary of state and rival Bernie Sanders can be more easily healed than those fracturing the Republican field.
House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer told reporters Tuesday that, â€œOur party is much more united on the issues than their party.â€
Former President Bill Clinton says his wife, Hillary Clinton, is the â€œbest change maker I have ever met.â€
Clinton introduced his wife in New Hampshire, the first primary state, hours after a close finish in the leadoff Iowa caucuses.
The former president said one example is his wife call during a recent debate for more resources for the region near the Flint, Michigan, water crisis.
He says, â€œHer opponent said what the governor did was terrible and he should resign. Her instinct was, â€˜What can I do right now, to make it better?â€™â€
Donald Trump says heâ€™s not getting enough credit for his 2nd place win in Iowa Monday.
He tweets: â€œThe media has not covered my long-shot great finish in Iowa fairly. Brought in record voters and got second highest vote total in history!â€
It was the third tweet from Trump since an overnight silence from the usually prodigious user of Twitter in the wee hours.
A few minutes earlier, Trump tweeted: â€œBecause I was told I could not do well in Iowa, I spent very little there – a fraction of Cruz & Rubio. Came in a strong second. Great honor.â€
Ted Cruzâ€™s team is already beginning to make a play for Ben Carsonâ€™s supporters.
Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler asked, â€œWhere is Ben Carson?â€ as various campaigns filed into a Manchester airport shortly after 5 a.m.
Carson was among the only major candidates who isnâ€™t campaigning in one of the early voting states on Tuesday.
The Cruz campaign sees Carsonâ€™s evangelical-leaning supporters as a natural fit for Cruzâ€™s camp if or when Carson leaves the race.
Ben Carson is taking a break from the campaign trail after his fourth-place finish in the Iowa caucuses.
Spokesman Larry Ross says the retired neurosurgeon is at home Tuesday in Florida before heading to Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. Heâ€™ll stay there through the National Prayer Breakfast scheduled for Thursday, then head to New Hampshire.
House Speaker Paul Ryan says congressional Republicans need to channel the anger of voters into constructive action.
The Wisconsin Republican spoke to reporters the morning after the Iowa caucuses. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and billionaire Donald Trump took the first two spots. Both contenders have emphasized fury at Washington.
Ryan says all Republicans are angry over the slow-growing economy, insufficient action by the Obama administration against the Islamic State extremist group and porous U.S. borders.
Ryan says Republicans need to â€œharness it into actionâ€ and also deliver a positive message to voters that things can change. He says itâ€™s time for conservatives and Republicans to unify and â€œthen go out and win an election.â€
Donald Trump is ending his Twitter silence with a tweet saying that second place is not, as he has said previously, â€œterrible.â€
He says: â€œMy experience in Iowa was a great one. I started out with all of the experts saying I couldnâ€™t do well there and ended up in 2nd place. Nice.â€
Ted Cruz won the Iowa caucuses Monday. Marco Rubio came in a close third to Trumpâ€™s second-place finish.
Hello, South Carolina.
Even as the candidates storming through New Hampshire ahead of the Feb. 9 primary, several campaigns are juggling their priorities to include next-up South Carolina.
Republicans vote Feb. 20 in South Carolina; Democrats follow Feb. 27.
Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and former President Bill Clinton â€” on wife Hillaryâ€™s behalf â€” are scheduled to appear will appear Wednesday.
For the GOP, South Carolina is the first opportunity to compete in a large electorate that reflects the wider Republican spectrum of bubusiness-minded conservatives, tea partiers, national security hawks and retirees from across the northeast and midwest.
The Democratic vote, meanwhile, allows African-Americans their first strong say in the presidential nomination, since Iowa and New Hampshire are overwhelmingly white.
A spokesman for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says the campaign is â€œstill assessingâ€ whether to ask Iowaâ€™s Democratic Party for a recount.
With just one precinct outstanding in Mondayâ€™s caucuses, Clinton led Sanders by less than three-tenths of 1 percent. The Iowa Democratic Party declared the contest â€œthe closest in Iowa Democratic caucus history.â€ Landing in the early-morning dark in New Hampshire, Sanders did not concede the race to Clinton.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich says heâ€™s â€œready to rollâ€ to a strong finish in the New Hampshire primary.
Heâ€™s pitching himself Tuesday as a candidate who can deliver on his promises of bringing conservative reforms to Washington because heâ€™s done it before.
Speaking in Newbury, New Hampshire Kasich is sticking to his message of bringing fiscal discipline to Washington instead of focusing on the results of Mondayâ€™s Iowa caucuses.
Kasich is betting his White House hopes on New Hampshire, insisting that running a positive campaign will vault him to the top of the pack. Polls show heâ€™s in the running for second place behind Donald Trump alongside candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, who both performed well in Iowa.
Kasich says, â€œI trust the people of New Hampshire to make a good decision.â€
A prominent South Carolina superdelegate says heâ€™s might look outside the Democratic party now that his candidate, Martin Oâ€™Malley, has dropped out of the presidential race.
Boyd Brown told The Associated Press Tuesday that he canâ€™t back Bernie Sanders because of his socialist-leaning views. And he says he canâ€™t support Hillary Clinton due to her lack of â€œcore values.â€
He says heâ€™ll â€œbe happy to listen to see ifâ€ former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg runs as an independent and will be interested in â€œwho the Republican Party goes with.â€
Democratic superdelegates can support the candidate of their choice at the partyâ€™s summer national convention, regardless of whom voters choose in the primaries and caucuses.
All Trump does is win, win, win? Not after the Iowa caucuses, Chris Christie is telling his New Hampshire supporters.
The New Jersey governor says at his campaign headquarters in Bedford, New Hampshire that, â€œwe can stop with the Donald Trump inevitability, because the guy who does nothing but win lost last night.â€
Trump took second place in Mondayâ€™s Iowa caucuses to rival Ted Cruz.
Chris Christie says New Hampshire voters are not going to be able to get rid of him through the next-up primary Feb. 9.
Heâ€™s telling them Tuesday morning, â€œIâ€™ll be like gum on the bottom of your shoe.â€
Christie is hanging his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination on a strong showing in the Granite State. He finished toward the back of the GOP pack Monday night in the leadoff Iowa caucuses.
Chris Christie says heâ€™s happy he met his admittedly low-expectations in Iowa, which he declared is now in his â€œrear-view mirror.â€
The New Jersey governor is speaking at a fundraising breakfast for the Salvation Army in Nashua. The first question he got from the audience was about Monday nightâ€™s caucuses in Iowa, in which GOP rivals Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio took the top prizes.
Christie declared that heâ€™s â€œpleasedâ€ to announce he â€œperformed exactly as I expected in Iowa.â€
Christie said his 2 percent finish was pretty good considering that some of his rivals â€” including Jeb Bush â€” spent millions and didnâ€™t end up much better.
He says, â€œWe spent $500,000 to get 2 percent, so who do you want managing your money?â€
Marco Rubioâ€™s campaign says the race for the GOP nomination is a three-man contest.
The Florida senatorâ€™s spokesman Alex Conant, says on Fox News Channel Tuesday that the Iowa vote shifted the contest from crowded to a fight between the candidates who placed first, second and third: Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Rubio.
Asked about other Republican rivals, including John Kasich, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie, Conant said none have a pathway forward to the nomination without winning the next primary in New Hampshire.
Ben Carsonâ€™s longtime adviser Armstrong Williams says the retired neurosurgeon and political newcomer has no intention of abandoning his presidential bid after finishing fourth in Mondayâ€™s Iowa caucuses.
Williams says the race is a â€œlong haul.â€
He adds that dropping out of the race â€œis not anywhere on (Carsonâ€™s) radar screen.â€
Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio says Sen. Tim Scottâ€™s endorsement is going to echo through the race for the Republican nomination.
The Florida senator says in a live interview early Tuesday in New Hampshire that Scottâ€™s â€œimpact is not just going to be in South Carolina but around the country.â€
South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott says Marco Rubio is the â€œone shotâ€ Republicans have to win the presidency in November.
The senator says in a statement Tuesday morning that heâ€™s joining Rep. Trey Gowdy in endorsing Rubio, who finished third in the leadoff Iowa caucuses. Sen. Lindsey Graham has endorsed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
New Hampshire votes next, followed by South Carolina.
The outstanding endorsement prize is Gov. Nikki Haley, who delivered the GOPâ€™s national response to President Barack Obamaâ€™s state of the union address last month. Haley has not indicated when she might publicly take sides.
Sen. Ted Cruz says he wonâ€™t be another victim of the Iowa conservativeâ€™s curse.
Unlike past conservatives whoâ€™ve won Iowa contest and then fizzled, Cruz says he has the financial strength, broad appeal and grassroots support to keep up the momentum.
Cruz tells CNN: â€œI believe we have the national campaign and infrastructure to capitalizeâ€ on his win.
Cruzâ€™s unexpected victory is drawing comparisons to past Iowa winners former Sen. Rick Santorum and former Gov. Mike Huckabee. Both failed to secure the nomination.
GOP presidential hopeful Marco Rubio is pivoting from his strong finish in Iowa to taking aim at front runner Ted Cruz.
The Florida senator says on ABCâ€™s â€œGood Morning America that Cruzâ€™s career is â€œone of calculation.â€
For example, Rubio says â€œcriticizes New York values but has raised millions of dollars from New York City.â€
Expect to hear more of that argument from Rubio, who came in a narrow third place to Cruz and billionaire Donald Trump in Tuesdayâ€™s leadoff caucuses.
Cruz has been willing to take a bundle of money from New Yorkers. His donors include Wall Street hedge fund mogul Robert Mercer, who contributed $11 million in April to a Cruz-aligned super PAC, according to federal filings.
Habitual overnight tweeter Donald Trump says…nothing on Twitter as of 6 a.m. EST.
The total Twitter silence from the prolific billionaire real estate magnate comes after Trump lost the Iowa caucuses Tuesday to Sen. Ted Cruz. He also came close to losing second place to Sen. Marco Rubio.
The final tweet before Trump went uncharacteristically silent came about 11 hours earlier and says: â€œTime to get out & caucus!â€
A large crowd of supporters greeted Bernie Sanders in Bow, New Hampshire, at 5 a.m. after the Democratic presidential candidate arrived from Iowa.
Sanders and Hillary Clinton are in a virtual tie in the Iowa caucuses. He tells the crowd in New Hampshire that his campaign â€œastounded the worldâ€ and is going to â€œastound the world againâ€ in New Hampshire. The stateâ€™s primary is next week.
Sanders says he canâ€™t believe that people stood outside in the cold for about two hours waiting for him to arrive. He jokes, â€œSomething is wrong with you guys!â€
Bernie Sanders says his razor-thin contest against Hillary Clinton in Iowa is giving his campaign a â€œkick-start.â€
The Democratic presidential candidate says it shows the American people that â€œthis is a campaign that can win.â€
Sanders tells reporters traveling aboard his flight to New Hampshire early Tuesday that his message of addressing wealth inequality resonated with voters in Iowa. He predicts it will resonate in the early voting states of New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.
