Live results: Bernie Sanders wins WY caucuses

Looking both E and W for support, Republican presidential candidates angled Saturday to choose up more delegates in CO while bidding for favor a half-continent far in New York’s all-important April nineteen primary. On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders picked up another win in Wyoming’s caucuses.

Republican Ted Cruz hoped to add to his edge in CO over front-runner Donald Trump when thirteen more delegates were to be chosen at the state’s GOP convention. Cruz already had locked up the support of twenty-one CO delegates and visited the state to attempt to pad his numbers there.

Keeping up his tussle with Trump over values, Cruz told the CO crowd it’s simple to speak about making America grand again – “you can even print that on a baseball cap” – but that the more necessary question is which candidate understands “the principles and values that made America grand in the first place.”

Trump left the CO conference to his organizers, and spent about a half-hour on Saturday touring the National Sept. eleven Memorial and Museum in lower Manhattan. His campaign issued a statement describing the site as “symbolic of the strength of our country, and in specific New Yorkers, who have done such an incredible work rebuilding that devastated portion of our city.”

“This is what ‘New York values’ are really all about,” it added, a not-too-veiled poke at Cruz, who's taken heat for his earlier criticism of “New York values.”

OH Gov. John Kasich, distant behind Trump and Cruz in the delegate, also was campaigning in New York.

Democratic presidential hopefuls, too, were focused on New York’s large trove of delegates even as WY gave its nod to Sanders over Hillary Clinton.

Sanders got word of his WY win from his wife, Jane, halfway through a rally in Queens. A raucous cheer went up from the NY crowd, but the WY win won’t assistance Sanders create up much ground in the delegate race. He picked up at minimum seven delegates to Clinton’s six, with one delegate yet to be allocated.

That means Clinton has 1.286 delegates based on primaries and caucuses to Sanders’ 1.037. When including superdelegates, or party executive who can back any candidate, Clinton has amassed even more delegates: 1.755 compared to 1.068 for Sanders. It takes 2.383 delegates to clinch the Democratic nomination.

Sanders, who grew up in Brooklyn, kicked off a four-stop NY City swing with a rally at a theater in Manhattan. He took a light-hearted jab at Clinton’s move to NY in two-thousandth to represent the state in the U. S. Senate.

Speaking about the upcoming NY primary, Sanders said: “Remember, this is Hillary Clinton’s adopted residence state,” to laughs from the crowd. “That’s not a crime, just wanted to create that point,” he added.

Sanders, who's presently won seven of the latest eight state contests, called WY “a beautiful, pretty state,” and told reporters the vote there was portion of a shift in support in his direction since the campaign left the Deep South.

“Now that we're in the second half of this campaign, we're going to state after state which I think have a more progressive outlook,” Sanders said. “We are in this race to win.”

Sanders, at his rallies, tried to adhere more to the issues after a fractious week in which he questioned Clinton’s qualifications to be president.

He said it was “amusing” to look the Democratic front-runner join NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo this past week to celebrate a bill raising the state’s minimum wage to $15, noting that she supports raising the federal minimum wage to only $12.

Clinton, who planned a Brooklyn campaign stop later in the day, does back Senate legislation that'd give cities and states the skill to set a higher hourly threshold. She made a stop at Junior’s restaurant in Brooklyn, where she spoke admiringly of the cheesecake, before her campaign event.

On the Republican side, Trump holds a wide delegate lead nationally, but there seems to be a genuine chance number one will claim a majority of GOP delegates before the national conference in Cleveland in July.

In Colorado, where more than 3.000 people at the state conference were picking thirteen delegates, Cruz supporters sported shining orange T-shirts with his slate of delegates printed on the back. Trump’s organizers distributed a slate that listed incorrect information for four of his candidates.
