With New Hampshire primary results in, People For the American Way President Michael Keegan released the following statement:

"That Donald Trump--who launched his campaign by calling Mexican immigrants 'rapists' and continued by calling for a 'complete shutdown' of Muslim people entering our country--has won the New Hampshire primary is all the evidence anyone should need to understand that the GOP has gone completely off the rails.

"We also must not ignore the fact that the runners up in New Hampshire are extreme in their own right. From moving to end all abortion access, to smearing all immigrants as possible terrorists, to pandering to the most extreme and violent voices in the GOP, the entire Republican presidential field is ignoring the priorities of most Americans and instead pushing a far-right agenda.”
