Senator Sanders won all three Primary contests on Saturday, trouncing Hillary Clinton in Hawaii, Alaska and Washington State by impressive margins.
Senator Bernie Sanders crushed Hillary Clinton yesterday, soundly beating the Democratic frontrunner in the Hawaii Caucuses after locking up overwhelming wins in Washington and Alaska.
With 87.8% reporting early this morning, Senator Sanders was leading in Hawaii 70.6% to 29.2%. Hawaii hold a hybrid event where voters meet in local groups like a caucus, but vote in a secret ballot like a Primary.
The Hill credits Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard for sealing the victory for Senator Sanders, after she resigned her Democratic National Committee position in order to support him. Rep. Gabbard, who served in Iraq, made a moving ad
for the campaign days before the Hawaii Caucuses.
At a rally in Madison, Wisconsin yesterday, Senator Sanders told the overflow crowd that his victories demonstrated that he has a viable path to the nomination.
“We knew from day one that politically we were going to have a hard time in the Deep South,” Senator Sanders said. “But we knew things were going to improve when we headed west.”
Senator Sanders will be awarded most of Hawaii's 25 delegates as he continues to chip away at Sec. Clinton's lead.
