AP projects Sanders as Democratic Michigan Primary winner

(WLNS) – The Associated Press is projecting a win for Bernie Sanders in Michigan.

This is a major victory for Sanders. He campaigned at colleges across the state last week including a stop at the Breslin Center at Michigan State University.

Sanders has now won nine states, but he still has a very long way to go if he’s going to catch up to Hillary Clinton.

He has just under half as many delegates as Clinton and would need to continue to rack up wins on a consistent basis from here on out to bridge the gap.
