Bernie Sanders is projected to win the Democratic primary in Utah, the third state called in his favor on Super Tuesday.

NBC and Fox News both called the race for Sanders just before 10:30pm Eastern. With a small fraction of the vote in, Sanders’ lead was greater than 10 percent at the time of writing.

There was no exit polling conducted in Utah.

A Data for Progress poll released on Monday showed Sanders with just a six point lead in the state. His actual margin of victory in the Beehive State is expected to be much greater based on early results.

Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in Utah in 2016, winning nearly 80 percent of the vote in the state’s Democratic caucuses.

There are 29 delegates up for grabs in Utah. 10 will be awarded based on the statewide vote, and 19 based on votes in congressional districts.
