    Clinton Concedes New Hampshire Primary to Sanders

    Hillary Clinton conceded the New Hampshire primary to Bernie Sanders, appealing to his voters in her address by discussing income inequality and Citizens United. (Published Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016)

    New Hampshire is no longer a Clinton family refuge. Bernie Sanders soundly defeated Hillary Clinton Tuesday in New Hampshire, a state that in the past had salvaged the presidential dreams of both Hillary Clinton in 2008 and Bill Clinton in 1992. 

    Nearly every demographic group soundly rejected Clinton's candidacy in favor of the 74-year-old self-described democratic-socialist barely known to most Americans. Since 2008, when Clinton edged past Barack Obama to claim a win in the Granite State, the Democratic Party has moved to the left. But Clinton's defeat is also telling of her unresolved, underlying weaknesses. 

    The campaign is planning to formalize a key role for Jen O'Malley Dillon, the former deputy campaign manager for President Obama's 2012 re-election campaign, a source confirmed to NBC News Wednesday.

    Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have been concerned about campaign strategy and messaging, according to sources.
