Super Saturday election results 2016 live: Sanders beats Hillary Clinton in Kansas and Nebraska caucuses, loses Louisiana

Super Saturday didn’t go the way Super Tuesday had gone for former secretary of state and Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton. She could win just one state while her only challenger, Bernie Sanders was able to scalp two states in Super Saturday elections.

Bernie Sanders amazed almost everyone with his exceptional showing in the Super Saturday primary elections. He was able to win Kansas and Nebraska caucuses while the frontrunner Hillary Clinton won Louisiana primary

Though she won big time in Louisiana, Sanders’ win in Kansas and Nebraska were equally impressive. Addressing a Detroit crowd at a campaign rally, Clinton commented on Saturday’s contests. “I want to congratulate Senator Sanders for running a strong campaign,” she told supporters. “I am thrilled we are adding to our pledged delegate count. I am grateful to everyone who turned out to support us.”hillary clinton vs bernie sanders 2016

She and Sanders are going to fight in out in Democratic debate tonight. She set her sights on future primary contests, declaring that after Saturday’s results, “now all eyes turn to Michigan.”

After a great day in the Super Tuesday Bernie Sanders said, “We have the momentum…We have a path toward victory. Our campaign is just getting started and we are going all the way to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.” Nonetheless he is far behind Clinton in terms of delegates. Heading into Saturday’s contests, Mrs. Clinton held a lead of 604 to 408 in pledged delegates. She also has the support of 458 “superdelegates”—party leaders and officials free to back the candidate of their choosing. Sanders has the backing of 22 superdelegates. A candidate needs 2,383 delegates to clinch the Democratic nomination.
