German Chancellor Angela Merkel got some bad news while attending the G-20 summit in China on Sunday.
In Germany, her party — Christian Democratic Union — came in third in her home state in the northeastern part of the country.
It was beaten by a far-right party that was founded in 2013. The party — Alternative for Germany — came in second to the Social Democrats. The center-left Social Democrats formed a "grand coalition" with Merkel's center-right party in 2013.
