Washington, Alaska and Hawaii all went Bernie Sanders' way this weekend, giving the Democratic underdog a much-needed boost toward closing the Hillary Clinton gap.
"Bernie! Bernie! Bernie! Bernie," the crowd chanted during Sanders' victory speech in Wisconsin.
These weren't small wins either. Sanders won 73 percent of the vote in Washington, 82 percent in Alaska and roughly 71 percent in Hawaii — with a few more precincts yet to report by Sunday morning.
