Congratulations to Hillary Clinton! The Democratic candidates for president made it to the very last primary election, in Washington, D.C., and she came out the big winner over Bernie Sanders! Here are the results.
Can you believe it’s over? Hillary Clinton, 68, and Bernie Sanders, 74, duked it out for just one last primary election, this time butting heads in their mutual home turf of Washington, D.C. on June 14. Hillary got the crowning glory of winning one last time over the Vermont senator. Click through to learn the specific results of the D.C. Democratic primary!
After what seems like the longest primary election season EVER, it’s finally over, and Hillary got one last big win over Bernie in the District of Colombia. Though the election was all but decided before a single vote was cast in Washington, Hillary solidified her lead on June 14 by winning with 79% to Bernie’s 21% percent. Ouch!
What a battle it has been! Tensions were high between Hillary and Bernie during this last battle after the contentious Super Tuesday primaries held on June 7. Hillary won five of the six voting states (Bernie took home North Carolina’s support), and became the presumptive democratic nominee for president. While everyone believed that the race was over, Bernie refused to back down in a raucous speech, backed by thousands of screaming supporters. While Trump is now the presumptive GOP nominee, he actually didn’t do too well in the GOP primary in Washington, DC. Trump came in third place to Marco Rubio, 46, and didn’t gain any delegates. Sad!
Bernie swore up and down that he would take his campaign to the Democratic National Convention in July 2016, and after tonight, he’s still doing just that! Those super delegates always have the option to change allegiance if they feel like it!
It may be a bit of a relief that primary season is over — unless you’re a fan of all the drama, of course. But it’s far from over yet. Expect the debates to start up again, and with a vengeance. Bernie and Hillary won’t just be going up against each other; they’ll be fighting valiantly against presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, 70! We’re not sure if we’re ready for this next leg of the 2016 race to the White House, but we better buckle in!
