Dem. Primaries: Sanders Wins Utah, Idaho; Hillary Takes Arizona

A good night for Bernie Sanders.

Former first lady Hillary Clinton was quickly called the winner of the Arizona Democrat primary on Tuesday evening. But Sanders pocketed two "yuge" victories last night, one in Utah and one in Idaho both by "sizeable margins."

In Seattle last evening, Clinton said: “We are determined that we’re going to give back the hope that every American should have — that their hard work will get them ahead, will enable them to have a better future.”

“That’s what we want for America," she said.

Yesterday, Sanders was in San Diego, talking about his "record-breaking turnouts" in Tuesday's election and explaining his popularity was because “we are telling the truth.”

“We cannot go forward as a nation unless we are prepared to confront the real issues facing our country."

Clinton now has 1681 delegates and Sanders has 927. The Democrat nominee will need 2383 delegates to clinch the nomination.

The Freedom Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Therefore we do not endorse political candidates either in primary or general elections. However, as defenders of America’s social contract, we insist that the rules laid down by both parties at the outset of campaigns be respected, and that the results be decided by free elections. We will oppose any attempt to rig the system and deny voters of either party their constitutional right to elect candidates of their choice.
