5. This continues an under-reported trend, for example in WA state

national reporting focused on it being a 'white' state.

The reporting did not drill down to specifics on counties such as Yakima, which has a significant Latino and Native American population.

American Indian and Alaska Native alone, percent, July 1, 2014 6.0%

Hispanic or Latino, percent, July 1, 2014 47.7%

Sanders trounces Clinton in Yakima County results

Free tuition was a huge selling point for Bernie Sanders among young Democrats in Yakima County, where the U.S. senator from Vermont garnered more than 75 percent of delegate count in Saturday’s caucuses, according to preliminary results.

Two days after he appeared at a rally in the Yakima Valley SunDome, Sanders garnered 393 delegates to Hillary Clinton’s 123, preliminary results indicated.

Beatriz Martinez, who also caucused at Adams Elementary School, believes more change is coming. That’s what prompted her participation.

“Most of us, the youth, and even the older people, we’re here voting for Bernie,” the 24-year-old said. “He makes our vote count.”

AMY GOODMAN: What do you say when people say, well, he won in white states, like, for example, they say Washington state?

ERIKA ANDIOLA: Right. Well, look, in Washington, we were—we went into Yakima, is one of the—about 45 percent to 50 percent of the community there is Latino—very diverse county. Bernie had a rally there. We had 7,000 people turn out. We ended up winning the county by 75 percent or 76 percent. It was amazing turnout. It was also great support that we had. And it’s a very diverse community.
