Sanders' Big Wins Could Help Close Clinton's Huge Delegate Lead
Bernie Sanders' Saturday caucus wins provide a big morale boost and momentum moving forward.By Eugene Daniels | March 26, 2016
Sen. Bernie Sanders won big in caucuses Saturday, including a huge margin of victory in the delegate-rich Washington state caucus.
"Don't let anybody tell you we can't win the nomination or win the general election. We're going to do both of those things!" Sanders told a campaign crowd Saturday.
Before caucusing took place, Sanders trailed Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton by about 300 pledged delegates; his big wins could help him close that gap. The Washington state electorate, in particular, was sort of perfect for Bernie Sanders: a lower number of nonwhite voters and a higher share of young progressives.
