The Indiana Hoosier basketball team colors are red, but Democratic voters turned the state blue in honor of Bernie Sanders. He won the Indiana Democratic Primary on May 3 with a close five percent victory. Click to see all the results!
It was another Battle of the Midwest, as Hillary Clinton, 68, took on Bernie Sanders, 74, in the Indiana Democratic primary. With Hill just leading by single digits going into this vote, Bernie ended up on top with 53% to 47% of the vote in the Hoosier State, and he proudly declared victory!
Hillary could have all-but-wrapped up the nomination on May 3, as the former Secretary of State had 2,165 of the 2,383 delegates needed to win. As of the time that the race was called, she’ll still nab at least 20 delegates even though she lost the state, while Bernie will take home 14 of the state’s 92 delegates. Both candidates will now be turning to West Virginia’s May 10 primary where
This incredible vote came after Hill completely crushed it during the “Acela primaries” on April 26. Named after the Amtrak express train that runs through five Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states, Hillary nearly pulled off a clean sweep, winning Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania. However, voters in Rhode Island were feeling the “berne,” and they sided with Bernie.
The loss in Rhode Island didn’t sting as much, as Hillary was still enjoying her massive victory in New York. Hillary, a former senator from the Empire State, took home 60.5% of the vote. The Empire State building even lit up in a lovely shade of sapphire blue in her honor. Considering even the late Prince predicted that a woman would be president in a lost Rolling Stone interview, could it be that Hill is destined for the White House?
Bernie says he will continue to fight until the California primary on June 7, so he’ll meet Hillary at the West Virginia primary on May 10 and the Oregon primary on May 17.
