Trump Sets New Record

Donald Trump

(StraightShooterNews.com) – Following a resounding win over his remaining challenger, former President Donald Trump achieved a remarkable milestone in New Hampshire’s presidential primary by securing a record number of votes.

He surpassed the previous state record set by Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who received 152,000 votes in the 2016 Democratic nomination race. Despite Sanders’ strong performance that year, he did not win the nomination.

Instead, Hillary Clinton was that year’s Democratic nominee. Clinton then faced Trump in the general election, where Trump emerged victorious.

The New York Times recently reported that Trump had received 163,713 votes in New Hampshire, making his victory not just a win but a historic moment in the state’s primary history.
