AP — The New Hampshire primary winners are Donald Trump on the Republican side and Bernie Sanders in the Democratic race. Each took the top spot after second-place finishes in the Iowa caucuses.

Trump’s first victory of the 2016 White House race means he’s no longer a political rookie but the front-runner for his party’s presidential nomination.

And the win for Sanders completes his rise from presidential long shot to legitimate challenger for the Democratic nomination against Hillary Clinton.
