Bernie Sanders wins big in Nebraska

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has defeated Hillary Clinton in the Nebraska caucuses.

With 75 per cent of the vote counted, the Nebraska Democratic party announced Sanders is currently leading Clinton. NBC News has projected Sanders the winner.

Nebraska had been a target state for Sanders this weekend, along with Kansas, which he also won today.

Following the victory, Sanders said his campaign has the momentum.

“We have now won double-digit victories from New England to the Rocky Mountains to the Great Plains to the Midwest. Democrats in Kansas today added to a column of double-digit victories in Minnesota, Colorado, Oklahoma, New Hampshire and Vermont,” he said.

“We also came from behind and ended up in virtual ties in Iowa and Massachusetts. We have the momentum. We have a path toward victory. Our campaign is just getting started and we are going all the way to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.”

Bernie Sanders wins in Kansas

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has won the party’s caucuses in the crucial state of Kansas.

With roughly 90 per cent of the vote counted, the Kansas Democratic Party has announced that Bernie Sanders has won the Kansas caucuses. Full results are still to be announced.

Kansas has been a target state of the Sanders’ campaign. Clinton’s campaign said earlier this week that they believed Sanders would win the state.

Following Sanders’ victory, his campaign sent a fundraising email to supporters saying that they aim to reach a 5 million contribution milestone before Sunday night.

Results from the Louisiana primary and Nebraska caucuses are yet to come in.

Sanders, Clinton to debate on Sunday

Democratic presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton will participate in a debate in Michigan on Sunday night.

The debate will take places on Sunday, March 6 at the Whiting Auditorium in Flint, Michigan. It will be hosted by CNN, moderated by Anderson Cooper, and will be live from 9pm ET. Dana Bash will also be asking questions.

It will air on CNN in the United States, and on CNN International and CNN en Español. It will also be live streamed internationally on CNN’s website.

A key issue in the debate will be the Flint water crisis, something both candidates have made a key issues in there campaign, with Sanders even calling for the Governor’s resignation.

The debate will take place just after the Kansas, Nebraska, Louisiana and Maine primaries, and right before the Michigan primary. Whichever candidate wins the majority of primaries right before the debate will have momentum on the debate stage, and going into the Michigan primary.

Clinton will now join Sanders in Fox News town hall

After initially declining to participate in Fox News’ presidential town hall on Monday night, Hillary Clinton says she will now join Sanders.

Citing a “scheduling conflict,” Hillary Clinton initially declined Fox News’ invitation to attend Fox News’ presidential town hall, hosted by Brett Baier on Monday night. She now says she will participate.

Clinton’s participation in the town hall will mark her first appearance on Fox News since 2014, according to the Blaze. Her last appearance was during a book tour.

Clinton and Sanders will make their final pitch to Michigan voters in the town hall, on the eve of the Michigan primary. It will be held at the Gem Theater in Detroit.

Sanders’ campaign sees Michigan as a key state, one it has to win in order to cut into Clinton’s pledged delegate lead. The Michigan primary will take place on Tuesday.

The town hall will be aired live on Fox News on Monday night from 6pm Eastern time.

Sanders to participate in Fox News town hall without Clinton

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has agreed to participate in a Fox News town hall, without his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

You don’t normally find Democrats doing exclusives with Fox News, but Bernie Sanders has accepted Fox News’ invitation to participate in an hour-long presidential town hall on Monday.

However, his sole opponent, Secretary Clinton, has declined Fox News’ invitation, due to a “scheduling conflict.” That will make Sanders the only Democrat on the network on Monday night.

Sanders’ spokesman Michael Briggs said that there had been conversations to have Donald Trump appear at the same forum, an idea Sanders had welcomed. He has long said that he would like a debate where candidates from both parties are able to participate.

Fox News requested permission from Democratic chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to host a Democratic debate. She laughed at the prospect.

The town hall featuring Bernie Sanders will be live on Fox News on Monday night from 6pm ET, and is expected to last roughly an hour. It will be part of Brett Baier’s Special Report program.

Bernie Sanders has a path to the nomination

Don’t let the media fool you. Bernie Sanders has a path to the Democratic nomination, especially after Super Tuesday.

The fact Sanders managed to win four of his campaign’s five target states, only narrowly falling short in Massachusetts, proves that he can target and win just about any state he likes.

He didn’t go into Super Tuesday trying to win every state his could. His campaign was able to identify states where he could win, run a strong campaign, and win, in many states by huge margins.

This shows that in upcoming primary states, he can do exactly the same thing. Looking ahead the next week or so, he can win Kansas, Nebraska and Maine. The real test will come on March 8, when Michiganders head to the polls.

If he can win Michigan, there’s no reason he can’t go on to win states like Florida, Illinois, Ohio and Arizona, all delegate-rich states that can help him to close Secretary Clinton’s pledged delegate lead.

Even if the next two weeks don’t go as well for Sanders as many expect, he has opportunities even further down the track to win delegates in large states such as California, and New York. He also has a good shot at winning Wisconsin and Washington.

Don’t let the media fool you. The Sanders campaign has proven it can target states it believes it can win, and win them. The primary schedule from here favors Sanders, and there is no reason why he cannot close Clinton’s pledged delegate lead, and come out on top by July.

If he has a clear lead with pledged delegates, the unpledged delegates will come around to support his candidacy, so he can unite to the party to defeat the Republican candidate in a general.
