Kansas, Nebraska, Louisiana Democrats Make Their Choice


Democratic voters made their preferences for president known on Saturday in Kansas (caucus), Nebraska (caucus), and Louisiana (primary). Kansas has 37 delegates, Nebraska has 30 delegates, and Louisiana has 59 delegates.

Bernie Sanders won Kansas by about 35 points, and Nebraska by about 14 points. This will likely give Sanders a 13 delegate edge in Kansas and about a 5 delegate edge in Nebraska. But Hillary Clinton won Louisiana by about 48 points, and since Louisiana had nearly twice the delegates of the other two states, will easily cover her delegate shortage and more.

Bernie won a moral victory by taking two out of the three states, but Hillary won the more important delegate victory -- and increases her overall delegate lead.

Here are the results in each state:

KANSAS

Clinton...............12,593 (32.3%)
Sanders...............26,450 (67.7%)

NEBRASKA

Clinton...............11,293 (43.4%)
Sanders...............14,711 (56.6%)

LOUISIANA

Clinton...............221,102 (71.2%)
Sanders...............71,900 (23.1%)

And here are the current delegate totals:

Clinton...............1121
Sanders...............479
