Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has suffered another blow to his long-shot presidential chances Tuesday night by faltering in Tennessee, where he lost handily to Hillary Clinton.

Despite being competitive with Clinton in the rest of the country, Sanders has struggled to penetrate the South, where a large proportion of Democratic voters are black. Tennessee was another example of that struggle. Sanders has trailed Clinton heavily in all polling of the state.

Tennessee’s 58 delegates will be allocated proportionally, with 44 being allocated at the congressional district level and 14 more at the state level.
