Elizabeth Warren made it clear her campaign will continue beyond New Hampshire. “I am here to get big things done,” Warren told supporters.
Warren addressed her election night crowd in Manchester less than 30 minutes after polls closed entirely in New Hampshire, where early returns showed her in fourth place behind Amy Klobuchar. Every other candidate who has spoken thus far tonight has dropped out because of disappointing returns.
“Our best chance of beating Donald Trump is with a candidate that will work … a candidate who can build a campaign to unite our party and a candidate who can build a movement who is ready to take on corruption and win,” Warren said, repeating common refrains from her stump speech.
“Amy and I are the only candidates in this race who are not either billionaires or supported by Super PACs,” Warren said of she and Klobuchar.
Expectations were high for Warren’s performance in New Hampshire -- she has served as a senator in neighboring Massachusetts since 2012.
“Tonight, I am here to say thank you,” Warren said, adding her thanks for every volunteer, door knocker and volunteer, as well as her husband and “good boy,” her photogenic golden retriever Bailey.
