Trump, Sanders win U.S. presidential contests in New Hampshire
By Steve Holland and James Oliphant MANCHESTER, N.H. (Reuters) - Riding a wave of voter anger at traditional politicians, billionaire Donald Trump won New Hampshire's Republican presidential nominating contest on Tuesday and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont won the Democratic primary. The results, though decisive, did little to clear up confusion about who would emerge as the establishment contender to Trump on the Republican side, and there were signs that the campaign of Sanders' rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was defensive about her future prospects. Trump's win solidifies his front-runner status in the race to be the party's White House nominee for the Nov. 8 election.
