Sanders wins 49 more delegates in Washington

Senator Bernie Sanders, current Democratic presidential candidate, was awarded 49 more delegates in the state of Washington by a district-level breakdown of the state’s primary results done by the Associated Press.

The senator from Vermont took the March 26th primary in a landslide, earning 25 of the 34 delegates awarded immediately on election day.

The remainder of the state’s 101 delegates are awarded according to the results of each congressional district, which hadn’t been confirmed until Saturday. Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton received 18 of the remaining delegates.

Sanders still needs 66% of the remaining pledged delegates in the primary, a hard to reach goal with the states left.


Clinton entered Saturday with 1,683 pledged delegates, with Sanders at 1,362.
