Hillary Clinton didn’t have to go to Las Vegas to feel like a winner, because the presidential candidate won the Nevada Democratic caucuses on Feb. 20! She’s back on top after losing to Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire!
For Hillary Clinton, 68, a victory in the Silver State feels as good as gold! After a close race, Hillary came out on top in the Nevada Democratic caucuses, leaving Bernie Sanders, 74, feeling the burn!
Hillary and Bernie were both gambling that the Nevada voters would double down and pick them as the winner during the Feb. 20 caucus. Bernie was hoping to have a pair of aces up his sleeve, but Hillary wanted to prove that nothing beats a Queen. Well, Hillary prevailed in Nevada, CNN projects.
As with the previous primary elections, Bernie and Hillary were neck and neck! But Hillary hit the jackpot with a projected 52.14% of the vote, smashing Bernie’s 47.69%! Hillary and her staff were celebrating from the get-go after her win, as she posted on Twitter: “To everyone who turned out in every corner of Nevada with determination and heart: This is your win.” So is she going to go hit the slots and catch a show next?
To everyone who turned out in every corner of Nevada with determination and heart: This is your win. Thank you. -H

Bernie was riding high after securing a major win in the New Hampshire primary on Feb. 9. Bernie seemed to bounce back from his loss in Iowa to trounce Hillary by double-digits. However, if Hillary can endure an 11-hour Benghazi hearing, she can handle a Primary loss.
While things didn’t get as nasty as the fight between their Republican counterparts, Hillary and Bernie did trade a few insults leading up to the Nevada caucus. While they were fighting for New Hampshire, Hillary said that Bernie would “dismantle” Obamacare, while accusing the Vermont senator of running an “artful smear” campaign against her.
At least Hillary was able to get Bernie’s name right. When Bernie won the New Hampshire primary, MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes, 36, flubbed Bernie’s last name, calling him “Bernie Sandwiches.” The Internet responded the only way possible: with hilarious memes.
With Nevada’s voters making their choice, it’s onward to South Carolina. The Palmetto State will holds its Democratic Primary on Feb. 27, just days before Super Tuesday on March 1. Super Tuesday is when more than ten states hold their primaries, and the results might give a candidate the party’s nomination.
Are you happy with the winner, HollywoodLifers? Who do you want to be the next President of the United States?
