New Hampshire Votes for Obama

This article is more than 10 years old.

Democrat Barack Obama has won New Hampshire, the state where he suffered a humbling loss on his way to the nomination.

Obama defeated Republican John McCain on Tuesday to claim the state's four electoral votes.

Obama lost the state's Democratic primary in January despite leading in polls. For McCain, Tuesday's loss was his first in a state that twice had launched him toward the GOP nomination.
