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.”
