Bernie Sanders swept all three Democratic caucuses Saturday. He won big in Hawaii, Alaska and Washington state.
While his 3 wins are not enough to stop Hillary Clinton’s path to the nomination, his wide margin of victory provides his campaign with a burst of momentum heading into a 10-day break before the next primary contest.
Sanders was victorious in Washington state’s caucuses 72.7 percent to Clinton’s 27.1 percent and won Alaska’s caucuses by a landslide, defeating Clinton 81.6 percent to 18.4 percent. At 4 a.m. Sunday, with 87.8 percent of precincts reporting, Sanders was declared the winner in Hawaii, leading Clinton 70.6 percent to 29.2 percent.
“We are on a path toward victory,” Sanders told a Saturday evening crowd in Madison, referring to his Alaska and Washington wins. “It is hard for anybody to deny that our campaign has the momentum.”
Sanders held a series of last-minute rallies in Washington the night before, finishing with a 15,000-person event at Seattle’s 50,000-plus seat baseball stadium, Safeco Field.
