Bernie Sanders projected to win Nevada caucuses


From Fox News


Sen. Bernie Sanders will win the Nevada caucuses, Fox News is projecting, furthering the democratic socialist lead over his Democratic rivals and raising the question as to whether he can be stopped on his path to the Democratic nomination.

With six percent of delegates in, Sanders leads with 55.3 percent.

According to those returns, former Vice President Joe Biden is in second place with 17.5 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has 9.4 percent, and former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg has 8.5 percent and billionaire Tom Steyer has 7.4 percent. Ultimately 36 delegates are at stake.


President Trump responded by congratulating “Crazy Bernie” and taking a shot at the rest of the field.

“Looks like Crazy Bernie is doing well in the Great State of Nevada. Biden & the rest look weak, & no way Mini Mike [Bloomberg] can restart his campaign after the worst debate performance in the history of Presidential Debates,” he tweeted. “Congratulations Bernie, & don’t let them take it away from you!”

The closely-watched process began Saturday with Nevada Democrats optimistic that they would avoid a repeat of the technical glitches that plagued the caucuses in Iowa. Those fears led the state Democratic Party to decide to rely on traditional reporting by phone, rather than an app made by the same developer that created the app blamed for the debacle in Iowa. It has also scrapped a plan to use a Google Forms app loaded onto iPads.
