— -- Voters have cast their ballots in the New Hampshire primaries, and the projected results are in with Donald Trump expected to win the Republican contest and Bernie Sanders expected to win on the Democratic side.

Here are some of the highlights from Tuesday night’s speeches after results were announced.

Donald Trump

“So, New Hampshire, I want to thank you. We love you. We're going to be back a lot. We're not going to forget you. You started it,” he said.

Trump on the other candidates: “They really are terrific. A number of them called. I just wanted to thank them but I wanted to congratulate the other candidates, okay? Now that I got that over with, you know, it's always tough and then tomorrow boom, boom. But that's the way it is.”

“I heard part of Bernie's speech," Trump said of Sanders. "He wants to give away our country, folks. We're not going to let it happen.”

Bernie Sanders

“Together, we have sent the message that will echo from Wall Street to Washington, from Maine to California. And that is that the government of our great country belongs to all of the people and not just a handful of wealthy campaign contributors and their Super PACs.”

“Let us never forget, Democrats and Progressives win when voter turnout is high. Republicans win when people are demoralized and voter turnout is low.”

“They're throwing everything at me except the kitchen sink, and I have the feeling that kitchen sink is coming pretty soon as well.”

John Kasich

“You know, there's something that's going on that I'm not sure that anybody can quite understand. There's magic in the air with this campaign because we don't see it as just another campaign.”

“We never went negative because we have more good to sell than to spend our time being critical of somebody else. And maybe just maybe, at time when clearly change is in the air, maybe just maybe we're turning the page on the dark part of American politics because tonight the light overcame the darkness of negative campaigning.”

“We're going to solve the problems in America not by being extreme, not by being first a Republican or Democrat but reminding everybody that we are Americans dedicating to shining up America and fixing our problems. Fixing our problems.”

Hillary Clinton

“I want to begin by congratulating Senator Sanders on his victory tonight, and I want to thank each and every one of you, and I want to say I still love New Hampshire and I always will.“

“I know I have some work to do, particularly with young people, but I will repeat again what I have said this week. Even if they are not supporting me now, I support them because I know, I know I’ve had a blessed life, but I also know what it's like to stumble and fall.”

Chris Christie

“We are going to go home to wake up by tomorrow afternoon, we should know, we should note the vote count is in that will allow us to make a decision about how we move from here in this race. But there is no reason to go to South Carolina and a hotel room to hear that. We will go home -- we haven't been home for two weeks. So we can actually get a change of clothes.”

Marco Rubio

“I’m disappointed with tonight. I want you to understand. But I want you to understand something. I want you to understand something. Our disappointment tonight is not on you. It’s on me. It’s on me. I did not do well on Saturday night, so listen to this that will never happen again.”

Carly Fiorina

“This fight is just beginning.”
