Sanders Awarded 49 More Washington State Delegates

Bernie Sanders collected an additional 49 delegates from Washington State on Friday.

The Hill reports:

The Vermont senator won the March 26 primary in a landslide, taking 25 of the 34 delegates awarded on election day.

The rest of the state’s 101 delegates are awarded according to results from congressional districts, which had not been determined until Saturday. Front-runner Hillary Clinton picked up 18 of the remaining district-level delgates, to go with the nine delegates she won on election day.

However, the newly awarded delegates won’t give Sanders much of a boost. He still needs to win 66 percent of the remaining pledged delegates in the primary, a figure that polling in upcoming states indicates will be hard to reach.

Clinton entered Saturday with 1,683 pledged delegates, to 1,362 for Sanders, according to the AP.
