"Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to as Pocahontas, is having a really bad night. I think she is sending signals that she wants out. Calling for unity is her way of getting there, going home, and having a 'nice cold beer' with her husband!" Trump tweeted, likely referring to a 2019 Instagram Live video in which Warren said she was going to "get me a beer" before later offering one to her husband.

Warren’s performance in New Hampshire comes after a third-place showing in the Iowa caucuses.

In a statement sent by Warren’s campaign, the Massachusetts senator suggested she would stay in the race for the foreseeable future.

“We might be headed for another one of those long primary fights that lasts for months,” Warren said. “We’re two states in, with 55 states and territories to go. We still have 98% of the delegates for our nomination up for grabs, and Americans in every part of our country are going to make their voices heard.”

As the results from New Hampshire continue to come in, Sanders is leading, with Buttigieg close behind.
