Sanders wins Nevada caucuses

Sen. Bernie Sanders won the Nevada caucuses on Saturday afternoon, marking his third straight popular vote victory in the Democratic presidential primary. With 4% of precincts reporting, he had won 54% of the county convention delegates used to determine the number of pledged delegates allocated to each candidate.

Former Vice President Joe Biden followed with 18 percent of the county convention delegates. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg were in a close race for third with 10 percent and 9 percent, respectively.

The final delegate count is pending as a majority of precincts had not yet reported results as of 8:45 pm ET. The next Democratic presidential primary will be held in South Carolina on February 29, 2020.

On the Republican side, the Nevada Republican Party bound the state’s 25 delegates to President Donald Trump on Saturday at its winter meeting. The party voted to cancel its caucus last September.
