New Hampshire primary fallout, coronavirus, heavy rain swamps South: 5 things to know Wednesday

Election 2020: Democratic field unsettled after New Hampshire primary
Democratic presidential hopefuls will hit the campaign trail Wednesday following a tight finish in New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary. Late Tuesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders edged former South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttigieg in a closer-than-expected finish. Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar came in a surprising third, a finish that built on her well-received debate performance last week. While the result could keep the race for the Democratic nominee more unsettled, it also raised further questions whether Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden, who ended up fourth and fifth respectively, can survive until the Super Tuesday contests just weeks away.

Is coronavirus loaded with potential to disrupt the economy?
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell plans to tell Congress on Wednesday that Fed officials are "closely monitoring" the coronavirus for disruptions "that could spill over to the rest of the global economy." In prepared testimony he plans to deliver before the House Financial Services Committee, Powell also will say Fed officials aim to hold interest rates steady barring a "material" change in their outlook. Coronavirus cases have surged to nearly 41,000 worldwide and the death toll has surpassed 1,000, mostly in China. Moody’s Analytics expects the virus to shave nearly half a percentage point off U.S. economic growth in the first quarter. Even so, economists predict solid growth of just under 2% for all of 2020.
