OLYMPIA, Wash. — Bernie Sanders won Washington’s Democratic presidential caucuses Saturday after tens of thousands of people met at schools, libraries and community centers.
Washington has 118 delegates at stake, with 101 to ultimately be awarded proportionally based on the results of the neighborhood gatherings. The remaining 17 are technically unpledged party and elected leaders, though a majority of them — including Gov. Jay Inslee and the state’s congressional delegation — support front-runner Hillary Clinton.
Many caucus sites were packed, and big crowds arrived well before the 10 a.m. start time.
