Sanders defeats Clinton in Wyoming Democratic caucuS

Washington, April 10 (IANS) Vermont Senator and US presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has defeated front-runner Hillary Clinton, his rival for the Democratic party nominations, in the Wyoming caucus, according to projections by major media groups.

With nearly all votes scrutinised, Sanders won on Saturday by a margin of more than 10 points in Wyoming, a state in the central US with a small, majority white population, EFE news reported.

However, Sanders’ victory will not have much of an impact on his campaign as he secures just seven of the 14 delegates from the state.

In the Democratic convention in July, where the party’s presidential candidate for the November elections will be nominated, Sanders is required to have 2,383 delegates, while he currently only has around 1,000.

Clinton, meanwhile, already has more than half the 2,383 delegates and enjoys a lead of more than 200 over the self-proclaimed democratic socialist.

The next caucus will be held on April 19 in the state of New York, which is considered to be crucial for all candidates and parties owing to the large number of delegates for grabs.

Last week, the primaries in Wisconsin dealt a setback to the frontrunners of both the Republican and Democratic parties, Donald Trump and Clinton, with Senator Ted Cruz and Sanders emerging victorious.
