MANCHESTER, N.H. -- The New Hampshire primary
winners are Donald Trump on the Republican side and Bernie Sanders in the Democratic race. Each took the top spot after second-place finishes in the Iowa caucuses.
Trump's first victory of the 2016 White House race means he's no longer a political rookie but the front-runner for his party's presidential nomination.
And the win for Sanders completes his rise from presidential long shot to legitimate challenger for the Democratic nomination against Hillary Clinton.
New Hampshire's secretary of state says voter turnout in Tuesday's presidential primary is likely to be slightly higher than in 2008.
Bill Gardner predicted several days ago that roughly 282,000 Republican ballots cast would be and 268,000 Democratic ballots cast.
He says his visits to various polling places Tuesday lead him to believe his predictions are on par.
