Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is the projected winner of the Nevada caucuses, according to The Associated Press.
Sanders took an early lead in Nevada after winning the contest in New Hampshire last week. Sanders and Former South Bend Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg nearly tied in Iowa where a chaotic vote-counting process has prevented The Associated Press from making a final determination.
Biden Says Nevada’s Made Him A Comeback Kid
Former Vice President Joe Biden said Saturday that his campaign is positioned for a comeback, after lackluster performance in the contests in Iowa and New Hampshire.
“Look, I know we don’t have the final results yet, but I feel really good,” Biden told supporters in Las Vegas. “You put me in a position — the press is ready to declare people dead quickly, but we’re alive and we’re coming back and we’re going to win.”
Biden’s campaign manager, Greg Schultz, tweeted Saturday that the campaign believes Biden will place second in Nevada based on its internal data and noted that according to entrance polls, Biden won the black vote, support from voters over the age of 65 and voters who oppose “Medicare for All.”
“I think we’re going to go, we’re going to win in South Carolina and then Super Tuesday, and we are on our way,” Biden said.
Klobuchar Says She Has ‘Exceeded Expectations’ In Nevada
As results from Nevada’s caucuses rolled in, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar told supporters gathered in Minneapolis that, once again, her campaign had outperformed expectations.
“As usual, I think we have exceeded expectations,” she said. “A lot of people didn’t even think I’d still be standing at this point.”
At the time, with just 3% of precincts reporting, Klobuchar was in sixth place.
During her remarks, she looked ahead to South Carolina — the next contest — and the glut of states that vote on Super Tuesday (March 3), including Minnesota. She noted that she and her husband, John Bessler, had voted early Saturday and urged voters across the state to do the same.
Klobuchar said that she has the “toughness to beat Donald Trump” and that because of her supporters, “we have proved the naysayers wrong every single time.”
NOTE THAT BLOOMBERG DID NOT EVEN MAKE THE STATS.
