But So Far Donald Trump Has Not Yet Called To Concede
Dixville Notch, New Hampshire: Noted New Hampshire Political Reporter Manchester Tadwell says shortly after midnight this morning, CNN was reporting Ohio Governor John Kasich had gotten an early boost when he won the vote in Dixville Notch, the New Hampshire hamlet that is traditionally home to the first vote in the first-in-the-nation primary. Kasich edged out Donald Trump 3-2, and Bernie Sanders shut out Hillary 4-0. Those were the only nine votes cast.

Voting at Midnight, Dixville Notch’s Nine Voters Send a Big Message
Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s march to the White House began tonight in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire when the first voters in the nation’s first primary chose him to be the Republican candidate for President.
Kasich worked hard for the Dixville Notch vote and was one of the few candidates to make the long trek to New Hampshire’s North Country to campaign. He later called each of Dixville Notch’s voters to personally ask them for their support.
“It is an honor to earn the support of people who celebrate democracy as faithfully and famously as the voters in Dixville Notch. New Hampshire rewards hard work and a positive campaign and that defines what our team has done here. We’re going to work hard until all the polls close to continue our success throughout New Hampshire and then take the campaign to South Carolina and beyond,” said Kasich.
