Bernie Sanders won the Maine Democratic caucuses on Sunday in a strong victory over Hillary Clinton, the Bangor Daily News reports:
According to results from the Maine Democratic Party, Sanders took nearly 64 percent of the state delegates with about 89 percent of caucus sites reporting by 9:15 p.m. Sunday.
“I thank the people of Maine for their strong support,” said Sanders in a written statement. “With another double-digit victory, we have now won by wide margins in states from New England to the Rocky Mountains and from the Midwest to the great plains. … The pundits might not like it but the people are making history.”
After winning caucuses Saturday in Kansas and Nebraska, Sanders said the win in Maine adds to his campaign’s momentum as it prepares for a key test Tuesday in Michigan.
Sanders took 15 delegates, Clinton took 7.
