Sanders takes West Virginia from Clinton, Trump secures Nebraska

sandr{BNN/WEST VIRGINIA, U.S. } – Bernie Sanders has reportedly won the West Virginia Democratic primary in the U.S. Presidential race on May 11.

According to reports, the Vermont Senator defeated Democratic presidential front-runner Hilary Clinton by more than 15 percentage points.

It was added that, in spite of this win, Sanders is still trailing behind Clinton, who is currently leading in delegate counts.

Experts have reportedly predicted Sanders’ win in Kentucky and Oregon on May 17 in the two Democratic challenges left.

Further, Sanders’ reportedly acknowledged in Oregon that the path to presidency is an “uphill climb,” but assured supporters that he was “going to fight for every last vote.”

Reports state that Hilary Clinton now requires 17 percent of the delegates in the remaining contests to secure her nomination as presidential candidate, and she reportedly seems to have turned towards a larger obstacle looming over her – Donald Trump.

The Republican Party’s presumptive nominee has reportedly cruised ahead smoothly, securing all 36 delegates in Nebraska’s Republican Primary on May 10.
