Pete Buttigieg spoke to supporters with returns showing him in a close 2nd place in New Hampshire Primary.
"I admired Sen. Sanders when I was a high school student. I respect him greatly to this day, and I congratulate him on his strong showing tonight," he said.
"So many of you turned out. Diehard Democrats. Independents, unwilling to stay on the sidelines. And even some newly former Republicans ready to vote for something new," he said. "Ready to vote for a politics defined by how many we call in instead of by who we push out."
