As we wait in anticipation for the Hawaii Democratic Caucus votes to come in, great news for the Bernie Sanders camp today [Saturday, March 26] as the contender has won Washington and Alaska.
On the heels of his caucus wins in Idaho and Utah earlier in the week, today’s two clear victories could really give Sanders a new burst of momentum heading into the Midwest and Northeast primaries next month.
While Sanders’ campaign is picking up steam, it appears Hillary Clinton isn’t worried. “I have, as of now, gotten more votes than anybody else, including Donald Trump,” she said in Washington on Tuesday, March 22. “I have a bigger lead in pledged delegates, the ones you win from people voting, than Barack Obama had at this time in 2008.”
The next nominating battle for both parties will be the April 5 primaries in Wisconsin.
