Bernie Sanders sweeps Hillary Clinton, wins Alaska, Washington, Hawaii

Bernie Sanders had a big Easter weekend, getting three massive victories Saturday over Hillary Clinton, with every victory by at least 40 percentage points (UPDATE: Not quite, 39.8% in Hawaii, upon final count).

Sanders won Alaska 81-to-18 percent over Clinton; 68-32 in Hawaii and 73-26 in Washington, with all precincts having reported.

On Sunday, he challenged Clinton to another debate, one in New York, before the state’s April 19 primary.
In an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sanders insisted that “we think we do have a path to victory.”

“I think when they begin to look at the reality, and that is that we in poll after poll are beating Donald Trump by much larger margins than is Secretary Clinton … A lot of these superdelegates may rethink their position for Secretary Clinton. A lot of them have not yet declared,” he said.

Sanders needs to win 67 percent of the remaining delegates and uncommitted super-delegates through June to clinch the Democratic nomination. And so far he’s winning only 37 percent.
NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “We have the momentum. We have won five out of the six last contests in landslide fashion. … And the reason is the issues that we are talking about — a corrupt campaign finance system, the disappearance of the American middle class, … kids graduating college $50,000 in debt.”
