Bernie Sanders wins again in Wyoming, Ted Cruz sweeps Colorado away from Donald Trump

Bernie Sanders earned another decisive win at the Wyoming caucus, beating Hillary Clinton 56% to 44%, and picked up seven delegates. Wyoming marks his seventh victory in a row (and eighth out of nine), giving him 1,068 delegates to Hillary Clinton’s total of 1,755 (a total which includes the superdelegates within the party.)

Up next is New York, the first of six populous eastern seaboard states with primaries that have a total of 753 delegates to split. Yes, “Sanders beat Hillary Clinton statewide by about 11 percentage points, though the end result was effectively a tie, as each candidate took seven of Wyoming’s 14 pledged delegates, the fewest any state had to offer. Mrs. Clinton’s nationwide lead remained at 219,” summarized the NY Times.

“We just won Wyoming,” Sanders said at a rally at the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center in Queens, prompting his supporters leapt to their feet and gave him a standing ovation. He thanked Wyoming voters, but said with a smile, “There are probably more people in this room than there are in Wyoming.”

In Colorado, Texas Senator Ted Cruz swept all of the state’s delegate elections, which ended on Saturday at the state Republican convention when he picked up the remaining 13, bringing his total there to 34.

Cruz was the only candidate to speak at the convention.

“The real question is: Do you understand the principles and values that made America great in the first place?” he said, taking a jab at his rival, Donald Trump, whose organization struggled with the most basic tasks in Colorado, such as printing the right delegate names next to the right ballot numbers on the lists of preferred candidates that Trump volunteers distributed on Saturday.
