The Republican Party of Florida said the New Hampshire primary results show voters are looking for an alternative to Hillary Clinton.
Clinton is projected to come in second place in the Granite State, with most news outlets already calling Bernie Sanders the winner of the state’s primary. Sanders was long favored to be the winner, with many polls showing him with a double digit lead over Clinton.
New Hampshire has been good to the Clinton family in the past. The state resurrected Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign. And in 2008, Hillary Clinton won the state after a poor showing in Iowa.
“In the past New Hampshire has been the Clinton safe-haven, but tonight’s disastrous outcome is once again a sign that Democrat voters are looking for an alternative to the Clinton lies and failed record,” said Blaise Ingolia, chairman of the Florida GOP.
“No matter how much the Clinton machine tries to spin these results, voters will continue to see the catastrophe of scandals and negative headlines that plague her campaign.”
