Sanders Wins Wisconsin
Bernie Sanders has won the Wisconsin Democratic primary, according to three television networks.
The Vermont senator, who led former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by slim margins in the state’s most recent public polling, had been barnstorming the state in recent days as he sought to shore up his support among working-class voters.
With Tuesday’s win, Sanders will have claimed victory in seven of the last eight contests, but he faces a tougher road ahead with a series of closed primaries that are not as well suited for his candidacy.
Sanders also still faces a significant delegate gap with Clinton, who leads in not just pledged delegates but also superdelegates.
For Democrats, Wisconsin awards its 86 pledged delegates on a proportional basis.
