Bernie Sanders projected to win Nevada Democratic caucuses as early results released

2020 Demo­c­ra­t­ic fron­trun­ner and Unit­ed States Sen­a­tor from Ver­mont Bernie Sanders appears to be on his way to a third con­sec­u­tive vic­to­ry in the con­test for del­e­gates to the 2020 Demo­c­ra­t­ic Nation­al Con­ven­tion in Mil­wau­kee.

Sanders is pro­ject­ed to be the vic­tor in this year’s Neva­da Demo­c­ra­t­ic cau­cus­es, which are wrap­ping up today at loca­tions across the Sil­ver State.

Sanders is also in first place in the ini­tial cau­cus results.

Trail­ing Sanders are (in the fol­low­ing order) for­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Joe Biden, for­mer South Bend May­or Pete Buttigieg, and Sen­a­tor Eliz­a­beth War­ren.

War­ren, who is already on her way to Wash­ing­ton State for a ral­ly at Seat­tle Cen­ter, had hoped to bol­ster can­di­da­cy with a stronger result in Neva­da than she received in New Hamp­shire a week and a half ago.

How­ev­er, it appears that she may once again fin­ish in fourth place.

The ear­ly results don’t look good at all for Amy Klobuchar, who man­aged a strong show­ing in the New Hamp­shire pri­ma­ry after a stel­lar debate in Man­ches­ter.

In the final align­ment, Sanders has almost a major­i­ty of the vote so far… 49.97%, while Biden is in a dis­tant sec­ond place with 17.02%.

Again, it’s still ear­ly… few­er than a hun­dred precincts have report­ed results so far. So the num­bers will change. But Sanders does appear to be in a com­mand­ing posi­tion, and the pro­jec­tion in his favor is based on sol­id data.

Sanders’ cam­paign cer­tain­ly thinks that they have won.

The cam­paign has already declared vic­to­ry in a blast to sup­port­ers.

“Bernie Sanders won Neva­da! Thank you! Now we NEED to be ready for the com­ing attacks. It’ll only get hard­er from here,” the cam­paign declared, exhort­ing sup­port­ers to “donate $27” as soon as pos­si­ble.
