2016 candidates scoop up delegates in West, bid for NY love
WASHINGTON (AP) —
Bernie Sanders is pointing to his growing string of statewide wins and Hillary Clinton to her still-commanding lead in delegates as the Democratic rivals jostle for momentum heading into New York’s big primary later this month.
The Republicans, too, are trying to scoop up delegates out West while bidding for some New York love.
With his win Saturday in Wyoming, Sanders has now won seven of the last eight state contests. But his latest victory did nothing to help him in the delegate chase: He and Clinton each got seven delegates.
On the GOP side, Ted Cruz completed his sweep of Colorado’s 34 delegates by locking up 13 at the party’s state convention.
Donald Trump got a late start in Colorado and left the state convention up to his organizers.
