MANCHESTER, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren has conceded the New Hampshire Democratic Primary with a fourth-place showing, but made it clear to supporters at her primary-night event in Manchester that she's in the race for the long haul.

"I want us to be honest with ourselves as Democrats, we might be headed for another one of those long primary fights that last for months," Warren told the crowd.

The Massachusetts senator thanked everyone who helped on her campaign in the Granite State.

"Tonight, I'm here to say thank you," Warren said. "Thank you to every volunteer, thank you to every organizer, to every door-knocker, to every phone banker, to every five dollar donor, thank you. Thank you for helping build a movement to take back our democracy and rebuild it from the grassroots up."

Warren trailed behind Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Sen. Bernie Sanders, who claimed victory around 11:30 p.m. She had a narrow lead over former Vice President Joe Biden.

"My plans for this country have been influenced by letters pressed into my palm by little girls," she said. "My will to fight has been strengthened by the people who have whispered their dreams in my ears. My determination to lead a movement has been forged by the tens of thousands of people who have said they are ready to fight for an America they know we can be. Because if we have the hope that comes with dreaming big, if we have the courage to fight hard, we are going to win."
