Sanders picks up a few more delegates at Colorado convention
Bernie Sanders is netting a few extra delegates at Colorado’s Democratic state convention – though it’s not having a real impact on his chances to win the presidential nomination.
Colorado has a multistep process of allocating delegates. Based on the March 1 caucus, Sanders initially picked up 38 delegates to Hillary Clinton’s 28.
Since then, Sanders has won additional support at congressional district conventions and Saturday’s state convention, resulting in a few more delegates.
The final delegate allocation for Colorado: 41 for Sanders, 25 for Clinton.
That means, to date, Clinton has 1,289 delegates from primaries and caucuses to Sanders’ 1,045.
When including superdelegates, or party officials who can support any candidate, Clinton has 1,758 to Sanders’ 1,076.
