Bernie Sanders Wins Idaho Democratic Caucuses

Alex Pfeiffer | White House Correspondent

Sen. Bernie Sanders won the Idaho Democrat caucuses Tuesday, getting himself a much-needed win after a series of key losses to Hillary Clinton.

Idaho has 23 delegates which are awarded proportionally and an additional four super delegates. One of them has already pledged their support for Clinton.

Coming into Tuesday Hillary led Sanders by 319 delegates and 441 superdelegates

Sanders throughout the election has fared significantly stronger in heavily white populated states such as Idaho.

The Idaho caucus allows non-Democrats to vote as long as they are eligible to vote in the general election and haven’t voted in the Republican primary. This should’ve helped Sanders, along with the fact that 17-year-olds who turn 18 by the fall election can also vote.
