Bernie Sanders struggles to rekindle his New Hampshire fire

Bernie Sanders struggles to rekindle his New Hampshire fire In 2016, Bernie Sanders established himself as a serious alternative for Democratic voters. Three years later, he finds himself struggling to replicate that performance. Elizabeth Warren, also from a neighboring New England state, threatens to crowd him out carrying her own liberal torch as the two battle to be the populist alternative to Joe Biden or Kamala Harris.

The truck driver, 23-year-old Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, pleaded not guilty to seven charges of negligent homicide.

On Friday, Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker announced changes to the state's Registry of Motor Vehicles, which include running all 5.2 million licenses through the National Driver Register to keep suspension information up to date and creating a new position to oversee safety and set requirements for commercial drivers in the state.
