New Hampshire Democrats celebrate primary night with Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Jeanne Shaheen

Addressing a standing-room only crowd of Manchester Democrats, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen thanked Granite Staters for their dedicated organizing, even when their candidate didn't have a primary opponent—what Sen. Shaheen called "a dry run for what we have to do nine months from now."

The attention's been on the Republicans tonight, but as Sen. Shaheen said, "We're watching who's going to win the GOP primary tonight, but it doesn't matter a whole lot. All the Republican candidates are just different shades of one color—and that color is scary. So we're going to do everything we can in the next nine months to return President Obama to the White House."

"Thanks to all of you who made phone calls, knocked on doors, and attended house parties," Rep. Wasserman Schultz said. "When Mitt Romney has New Hampshire in his rear-view mirror tomorrow, we are going to be here rolling up our sleeves and operating the most robust presidential campaign in grassroots history."
