Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders visited New Hampshire Thursday on the heels of new polls showing a comfortable lead in both that state and Iowa over Democratic rival Sec. Hillary Clinton Wednesday.
“When we began this campaign about nine months ago, our candidacy was considered to be a ‘fringe candidacy,’” Sanders told supporters in Peterborough.
No one is calling him that these days, with a double-digit lead in the polls in New Hampshire and a surging campaign in Iowa. Instead, Sanders is looking ahead to South Carolina and Nevada, and feeling more confident every day.
