Weld had hinged his long-shot White House bid on a decent showing in New Hampshire, saying that he could make waves if he was able to peel off a substantial enough portion of the GOP vote from Trump.

“If I got 20 percent, they’d be like, holy shit, what’s happening here?” Weld said in an interview with The Hill last month.

The results from the Democratic primary are still far from finalized.
