Sanders Wins Washington, Sweeps Hawaii And Alaska.

Senator Bernie Sanders captured Washington State’s presidential delegates, Saturday, as Democrats caucused across the state.

Sanders had a wide lead over Hillary Clinton in the first results. At one precinct caucus in a South Seattle elementary school, Sanders had twice the number of supporters as Hillary Clinton, with four people undecided.

Nancy Scott urged undecided voters to embrace Sanders, telling them Hillary Clinton has compromised on too many issues and Sanders has grassroots support.

Scott:  "He has generated a lot of enthusiasm. Hillary might have a whole bunch of supporters but I’m not seeing the national enthusiasm."

The undecideds did support Sanders in that gathering. Alaska and Hawaii also held caucuses Saturday, but Washington State had the most delegates at stake with 101. Sanders campaigned in Portland, Friday, at the Moda Center with around 10,000 people in attendance.
