Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) suggested his campaign was gaining momentum Tuesday after telling the crowd gathered at his campaign rally that he was projected to win the primary in Wisconsin.

Sanders spoke at a rally in Laramie, Wyoming — the state of the next Democratic caucus on Saturday.

“With our victory tonight in Wisconsin, we have now won seven out of eight of the last caucuses,” Sanders told the crowd. “And we have won almost all of them with overwhelming landslide numbers.”

Sanders suggested his campaign was gaining momentum compared to when the “media” determined his bid was a “fringe candidacy.”

Clinton tweeted Sanders her congratulations.

  2. haha! When I clicked on this, I thought this was going to be article about coaxing Clinton super-delegates to Bernie’s side. It made me laugh. Well done. :grinning:

  3. I’m going to put down a marker.

    Sanders might win a small number of additional small states (OR, for example) but this is where his wave crests. Sanders’s interview with the NY Daily News editorial board is the precise moment where the press tastes blood in the water; now the hard questions begin.

  4. Definitely will be more minority representation in the remainder of the states left, so Hillary Clinton will be doing well come April 19th and beyond.
