Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won Tuesday’s Democratic caucus in Utah.

Of Utah’s 33 Democratic delegates, 11 are awarded based on the statewide vote and another 22 are allocated proportionally among the state’s four congressional districts. Any registered voter can vote in the Democratic caucus.

Recent polling in the state was deeply split, but betting markets put Sanders’s chance of winning the caucus at 84 percent. A Deseret News/KSL poll conducted earlier in this month showed Sanders with an 8-point lead, but a February poll showed Hillary Clinton up by seven percent.

The Sanders campaign spent only $234,000 on ads in Utah, while the Clinton campaign did not spend any money at all.

Despite his big win in Utah, Sanders still faces a sizable delegate deficit.
