Sanders Beats Clinton in Wyoming Sanders Beats Clinton in Wyoming

Bernie Sanders has won the latest stage in the battle for the Democratic nomination in the US presidential poll by securing victory in Wyoming. The state’s 14 delegates will be awarded proportionally. Sanders has won seven of the latest eight states. However, rival Hillary Clinton maintains a clear lead in the overall race. Both are concentrating their efforts on the key New York primary later this month, BBC reported. In the Republican race, Ted Cruz hopes to pick up more delegates in Colorado. In state assemblies that culminated on Friday, Cruz won 21 delegates to just two for Donald Trump, who still has a comfortable lead in the overall nomination race for the Republicans. The next big prize for both parties is the New York primaries on 19 April: 291 delegates are at stake for the Democrats and 95 for Republicans. Despite Saturday’s win in the Wyoming caucuses, Sanders still has only 1,061 delegates to 1,749 for Clinton, when the latter’s 469 super delegates are added to the tally. To win, a candidate needs 2,383.
