(Reuters) - Billionaire businessman Donald Trump won New Hampshire's Republican presidential nominating contest on Tuesday, while U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont won the Democratic primary over Hillary Clinton, U.S. television networks said after early results. Trump's win solidifies his front-runner status in the race to be the party's White House nominee in 2016. Sanders, who describes himself as a democratic socialist, was the underdog in the race against former Secretary of State Clinton.
