Bernie Sanders Wins Nevada Caucus - Would You Vote for Bernie?
How do you feel about Bernie Sanders?
by Axios | 2.22.20
Sen. Bernie Sanders is projected to handily win the Nevada Democratic primary caucus, becoming the clear frontrunner among 2020 Democratic presidential primary election candidates.
Why it matters: Nevada is the first state with a diverse population to hold a nominating contest, highlighting candidates' abilities to connect with voters of color — particularly Latino voters.
- "We won the popular vote in Iowa," Sanders said in a victory speech.
- "We won the New Hampshire primary. And according to three networks and the AP, we have now won the Nevada caucus."
As the results streamed in, Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg appeared to be vying for second place, trailed by Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar.
- Tom Steyer and Tulsi Gabbard were at the rear of the pack.
- Mike Bloomberg did not make the ballot in Nevada.
The big picture: This is the third straight contest where Sanders has either won or finished in a virtual tie.
Between the lines: Sanders' campaign invested millions to attract Nevada's Latino voters going into caucus, Politico reports.
- 76 of the 250 Sanders staffers in Nevada are Latino.
- His campaign hosted 35 events in Spanish.
- Sanders targeted Latinos on digital platforms like YouTube, Hulu and Pandora.
What they're saying:
- Sanders in Texas: "I have absolute confidence we can create a government based on compassion, based on love and based on truth, not what we have now of greed, corruption and lies."
- Joe Biden: "I know we don’t have the final results yet, but I feel really good. ... You put me in a position, you know the press is ready to declare people dead quickly, but we’re alive and we’re coming back and we’re going to win.”
- Biden's campaign manager Greg Schultz: "Based on our internal data, Biden will come in a strong second tonight ... Make no mistake: The Biden comeback starts tonight in Nevada."
- Biden to a supporter: “Y’all did it for me, y’all did it."
- Pete Buttigieg: "Let’s take a sober look at what's at stake ... Sanders believes in an inflexible, ideological revolution that leaves out most Democrats, not to mention most Americans."
- More Buttigieg: "We need to have a nominee who actually gives a damn about what the top of the ticket means for those crucial frontline House and Senate races."
- Amy Klobuchar in Minneapolis: “We have a great team down there, still working hard. They're counting the votes, but as usual, I think we have exceeded expectations,”
