WASHINGTON — Put Wyoming in the victory column for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Sanders won the state’s caucuses over Hillary Clinton, but the win isn’t likely to help him make up much ground against in the delegate race that will decide nomination.
Wyoming awards just 14 delegates overall, and before Saturday’s results, Clinton held a commanding lead of more than 200 pledged delegates.
Her edge over Sanders is even greater when you count the party insiders who are known as superdelegates.
Sanders has dominated in states where Democrats make their presidential preference choice in a caucus – but there are only a few caucuses left on the election calendar.
Most of the states still to vote will hold primaries – contests where Clinton has generally performed better.
Ted Cruz says there’s no room for subtlety in politics – and his team is making that clear at Colorado’s Republican state convention.
Cruz’s supporters in Colorado Springs are wearing bright orange T-shirts – with his slate of desired delegates printed on the back.
That’s in contrast to Donald Trump, who skipped the convention to remain in his home state of New York, which holds its primary April 19.
Trump’s organizers in Colorado distributed a slate that included incorrect information for four of his desired delegates.
Maximum bickering between the Democrats over the minimum wage.
Bernie Sanders says it’s “amusing” to see Hillary Clinton join New York’s governor in celebrating a bill raising the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour because – as Sanders notes – Clinton supports increasing the federal minimum wage to $12.
But she does back Senate legislation that would give cities and states the ability to set a higher threshold.
Sanders made the comment during the first of four stops Saturday in New York City. The state’s primary is April 19.
After recently questioning Clinton’s qualifications to be president, Sanders is sticking largely to the issues – the minimum wage, Social Security, campaign financing.
Sanders wants Clinton to make her position on Social Security clearer.
She says she’ll preserve the program by asking the wealthy to pay more.
Sander says he’d lift the cap on taxable income to ensure the wealthy are contributing more and he promises to expand benefits.
Donald Trump has visited the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum in Lower Manhattan.
The Republican presidential front-runner arrived shortly after noon and spent about 30 minutes touring the museum.
He left without speaking to members of the media who were invited along for the visit by the campaign.
Trump has criticized rival Ted Cruz for comments that Cruz made at a GOP debate criticizing New York values.
In defending his home city, Trump has pointed to New York’s response to the Sept. 11 attacks.
