Going West: Sanders wins big in HawaiiComments
Bernie Sanders has claimed huge victories over rival Hillary Clinton in Alaska, Washington and now Hawaii.
The Democratic presidential contender’s prospects of winning the nomination had taken a dent after losses in the southern states, but will be bolstered by the results ahead of the Wisconsin vote on April 5.
Noting the big crowds attending his rally, he is attempting to prove his viability as a candidate ready to beat Republican presidential contender Donald Trump. He also noted that the wins had made ‘significant inroads’ into Clinton’s lead.
“I believe that our campaign is the campaign of energy, of momentum, which will lead to a large voter turnout in November and victory,” Sanders told supporters in Madison, Wisconsin.
The Vermont senator still faces a mammoth task of winning up to two-thirds of the remaining delegates to catch up with Clinton.
Sanders has won over many young voters with his anti-Wall Street rhetoric.
