Last night, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton delivered a blow to Sanders as she picked up more than half of the 384 pledged delegates in Tuesday’s primaries. Clinton’s victories make it almost impossible for Sanders to secure the Democratic nomination.
The Huffington Post further explains:
Ahead of Tuesday’s primaries, Clinton had 1,428 pledged delegates, while Sanders had 1,153. (Winning the nomination requires 2,382 delegates, including unpledged superdelegates.) In order to get on track to overtake Clinton in the delegate race, Sanders needed to win big in Tuesday’s contests. That didn’t happen.
Sanders shifts focus but vows to persevere
