Democrats in the U.S. state of New Hampshire are voting for candidate they think can beat President Trump in November’s presidential election. For more on this and other news from around the world, let’s turn to our Yoon Jung-min. Jung-min, what’s the latest? Mark, Voting is well underway in the New Hampshire primaries,… with 24 pledged delegates up for grabs. Polls will close at 8 PM Eastern Time,… and we’ll get the results soon after that. Why does New Hampshire matter? It’s because its primary results are likely to affect the rest of the Democratic caucuses and primaries going forward. New Hampshire is the only second state to vote following the Iowa caucuses,… so it’s the first Democratic primary in the U.S. So, for Democratic candidates, this race matters a lot,… especially when there’s no real front-runner in the party,… whereas President Trump is likely to sweep almost all the votes from the Republican side again. In New Hampshire, registered Democrats and independents can take part in the primary. Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg won a surprise victory in Iowa. All eyes are on whether Buttigieg can follow that with another win in New Hampshire,… or others in the hat like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden or Amy Klobuchar can grab the win. In the meantime, a survey in the New York Times showed virtually all the Democratic candidates were against the idea of pulling American troops out of the Korean peninsula. #NewHampshire #U.S. #election Arirang News Facebook:
