Wow. And Bernie and Cruz cleaned up on delegates.
Bernie Sanders won 48 of Wisconsin’s pledged Dem delegates, while Hillary Clinton took 38, according to a tally the state Dem Party released this afternoon.
Though Sanders rolled to a 14-point win in yesterday’s primary, the party’s proportional system for divvying up delegates means Sanders will not significantly eat into Clinton’s lead nationally. What’s more, six of Wisconsin’s 10 superdelegates are backing Clinton.
On the GOP side, Ted Cruz won 36 of Wisconsin’s 42 delegates, according to results compiled by The Associated Press. That includes the 18 delegates at stake for the statewide results and 18 for winning six of Wisconsin’s congressional delegations. Trump picked up six delegates by winning the 3rd and 7th CDs, according to the AP.
In all, the state’s turnout was at 47.35 percent, the GAB said, though official results will not be in until after the vote is certified in a couple of weeks.
