Sanders, who spoke to supporters on Tuesday night at the Southern New Hampshire University field house, finished with a smaller margin of victory than his finish in 2016 against Hillary Clinton. Only a couple points and some 4,000 votes separated Sanders and Pete Buttigieg on Tuesday night, with Amy Klobuchar a little further behind.

“And let me say tonight, that this victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” Sanders told his crowd of supporters.

Throughout the night, the shape of a large Democratic field seemed to change shape in a matter of hours: One candidate with a loyal following, Andrew Yang, dropped out. Two others who have previously enjoyed the position of strong frontrunner, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden, finished below 15%, leaving without collecting a single pledged delegate from the state.

BEVERLY HILLS (Beverly Press) — A political action committee with many contributors connected to the real estate and development industry has made waves in the Beverly Hills City Council race.

The PAC, Beverly Hills United to Support Bosse and Gold for Council 2020, has sent out mailers and placed advertisements on behalf of the incumbents, Dr. Julian Gold and Lili Bosse, touting their endorsements and accomplishments since they took office in 2011.

The advertisements also often include instructions for how to select Gold on the new Voting Solutions for All People system, which will require voters to hit the “more” button to find Gold’s name.
