CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was the most popular write-in candidate for president in New Hampshire, earning nearly 4,500 votes out of about 12,000 write-ins.

The Democrat won New Hampshire’s presidential primary, but later lost the nomination to Hillary Clinton.

The Concord Monitor reports (https://bit.ly/2f3JEC2) that Republicans made up most of the write-in candidates, with Ohio Gov. John Kasich winning the second-highest number of votes with 1,365. Behind him was Evan McMullin, a former CIA agent who received a little more than 1,000 write-in votes.

Other Republicans included Mike Pence, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, John McCain, and Ron and Rand Paul.

Chris Christie won the lowest number of presidential write-in votes at 23, behind performance artist Vermin Supreme and Vice President Joe Biden.
