WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the presidential campaign, with the focus Saturday on the delegate hunt for Republicans in Colorado and Democrats in Wyoming, while several candidates campaign in New York, which holds its primary April 19.

Bernie Sanders’ win in Wyoming isn’t yielding much in delegates.

With just 14 delegates, Wyoming has the fewest pledged delegates to offer among the 50 states.

Sanders prevailed in caucus voting Saturday, and has now won 16 states to Clinton’s 18.

He picked up at least seven delegates to Clinton’s six. One delegate remains to be allocated, pending the final vote tally.

That means little change to the overall delegate count, in which Clinton leads by a large margin.

To date, Clinton has 1,286 delegates based on primaries and caucuses to Sanders’ 1,037.

When including superdelegates, or party officials who can back any candidate, Clinton has amassed even more delegates, 1,755 compared to 1,068 for Sanders.

Sanders still needs to win 68 percent of the remaining delegates and uncommitted superdelegates if he hopes to take the Democratic nomination. It takes 2,383 to win.
