The rise for Sanders in the New Hampshire polls coincides with two events: On May 27, Sanders officially announced his bid for the presidency, and on June 2, "Run Warren Run" a volunteer group that aimed to draft Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as a Democratic candidate, announced the suspension of the effort and the closing of the group's field offices.
