Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) assured to MSNBC that her campaign is still viable following an abysmal performance in the New Hampshire Democratic primary on Tuesday.

Warren came in at fourth place with only 26,434 votes, or 9.25%. Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT) came in first place with 73,809 votes. Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg was close behind with 69,413 votes. 

While talking to MSNBC and later posting to her Twitter account, Warren said a "broke" college student told her she only had $6 left in her bank account and how she donated half to "keep you in this fight."

"I tell you, there are so many people who are in this fight for the right reasons," Warren told network contributor and former Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill.

"That's what we gotta do. We've gotta stay in this fight with people who are counting on us. This isn't about fighting other Democrats. This is about fighting for the America that we believe in," Warren added.

Warren has been criticized for taking the little bit of money her supporter has left while she is a millionaire.

To no one's surprise, President Trump easily won the New Hampshire primary, getting a larger number of votes than previous incumbents such as Barack Obama and George W. Bush.
