Caucus Results and Some Interesting Reporting

Sanders supporters read all the way through the results to see some additional reporting.


Saturday caucus live updates, results: Bernie Sanders wins Alaska, has big lead in Washington

He also secured the backing of rising Hawaii political star Kaniela Ing, a 27-year-old state representative. "As a Democrat facing my own primary challenger, I have been advised to stay neutral in presidential politics," he said this week. "But I cannot remain neutral any longer. This election is far too important. That's why today I am endorsing Sen. Bernie Sanders to be the next president and commander in chief of the United States, the only candidate willing to walk the talk to get big money out of politics."

This endorsement comes on the heels of one from popular Hawaii U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who gave up a leadership position in the party to back Sanders.

To be sure, Clinton remains the heavy favorite to prevail in the battle for the nomination, and she has begun to hone a populist-yet-pragmatic message that has the potential to reach a broad Democratic constituency in many of the remaining states. But the nomination remains up for grabs -- especially if Sanders manages to sweep the three Western states voting this weekend.
