Live results for the New Hampshire Democratic primary

The New Hampshire primary could finally bring clarity to a crowded Democratic race.

No candidate dropped out after the days-long mess of the Iowa caucuses, so New Hampshire voters could be the first to winnow a candidate field that is still in the double digits. And unlike the confusing three sets of numbers that determined a winner in Iowa, New Hampshire’s results will be cleaner. It’s a traditional primary with a secret ballot.

On Monday, Bloomberg’s campaign gathered hundreds of tech leaders on a conference call and asked them to refer their most talented technical colleagues and friends to Bloomberg’s gargantuan election operation in New York. Recode obtained access to the private call and registered for it.

The request made plain Bloomberg’s comfort with — and, in some ways, dependence on — the Silicon Valley companies that have been persistently …
