Clinton wins Nebraska primary, but gets no delegates

Filed under: Headlines I Like To See

Hillary Clinton won a symbolic victory Tuesday in Nebraska, taking 59 percent of the primary vote and rival Bernie Sanders getting 40 percent.

Democrats in the Cornhusker State held a presidential caucus in March, with Sanders emerging victorious. The two Democratic candidates appeared on the state's primary ballot on Tuesday, as voters went to the polls to make their choice in the GOP race.

In the March caucus, Sanders won 57 percent of the vote to Clinton's 42 percent, taking 15 delegates to Clinton's 10.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump also won Tuesday in Nebraska.

1. That's right. Bernie already won the caucus. He got 15 delegates to her 10 I think.

 

The primary served no actual purpose. Note that Bernie doesn't agree with this system, but has to work within it in order to win, and then change it, as he plans to.

3. Yep, but that's the way it works. Luckily, this time it helped our candidate!

 

Be happy!
