New Life for Klobuchar in New Hampshire, Biden Again Goes Bust

As the first Democratic primary of 2020 has come and gone, Sen. Amy Klobuchar has gotten a much-needed boost, and the campaigns of former VP Joe Biden, and progressive Sen. Elizabeth Warren, have been left barely breathing.

After his disappointing showing in the Iowa caucuses, Joe Biden took another shellacking in New Hampshire, finishing with a dismal 8%.

Overall, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont narrowly edged former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg to claim victory in the primary, with 25.9% and 24.4% respectively, each garnering 9 delegates.

But the biggest winner in Tuesday’s contest – the first primary in the White House race – may well be Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, who came in a strong third. Klobuchar finished far ahead of Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and former Vice President Joe Biden, who are limping out of New Hampshire facing serious questions about the future of their campaigns.

“We love you New Hampshire,” Klobuchar stressed in her primary night speech. “Because of you, we are taking this campaign to Nevada. We are going to South Carolina. And we are taking this message of unity to the country.”

Klobuchar – who hails from Iowa’s neighbor to the north – finished a distant fifth in last week’s Iowa caucuses. But a strong presidential primary debate performance on Friday seemingly pumped up her fortunes and gave her a big bounce – as she surged in the final tracking polls over the weekend. The senator was obviously able to capitalize on her last-minute momentum.

“Man, were we at the debate in New Hampshire,” she remarked in her primary night speech. And speaking with reporters after her address — Klobuchar predicted that “we are on the rise. This is just the beginning… Imagine what we’ll do in Nevada.”

Exit polls suggest that older and more educated voters, as well as moderates and those looking for a candidate to unite the country, boosted Klobuchar’s performance.

Veteran New Hampshire based political scientist Wayne Lesperance said that Klobuchar’s finish stole the headlines.

“While most of the attention this week has been on Sanders and Buttigieg, the big story out of New Hampshire may just be Amy Klobuchar’s 3rd place finish,” highlighted Lesperance, vice president of academic affairs at New England College.

“With much less national attention, resources, ads and celebrity endorsements, Klobuchar campaigned the way Granite Staters expect – lots of shoe leather and retail politics. And with that approach she’s beaten former front runners like Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren. It’s hard not to conclude, New Hampshire has a new comeback kid.”

Klobuchar now moves on with a ton of momentum and a likely boost in fundraising. Her campaign immediately went up with TV ads in Nevada.

Nevada and South Carolina follow New Hampshire – which is an overwhelmingly white state – in the presidential nominating calendar. Biden’s campaign has long considered Nevada and South Carolina – with their far more diverse electorates – as much friendlier ground for the former vice president. And they’ve pointed to South Carolina – with a majority black electorate in the Democratic presidential primary – as their firewall.

Seeming to understand that South Carolina could be the last gasp for the floundering former VP, Biden headed south on Tuesday, flying to South Carolina even before the polls closed in New Hampshire.

    If I voted for a Democrat it would be Amy. I saw her in the cartoon and I think we really would reach Mars with her as president. The green alien boyfriend might share some technology.

    All previous presidents were always calling for unit it’s absurd why the nation keeps saying it’s President Trump fault. It shows America was not ready for a strong President that’s why they rather vote for some one they don’t know vs the one who has done a lot in three years.
