Clinton wins Northern Mariana Islands caucuses

Hillary Clinton on Saturday won the Northern Mariana Islands' Democratic caucuses, according to the commonwealth's Democratic Party.

The Northern Mariana Islands, consisting of 15 islands in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, is one of two territories with U.S. "commonwealth" status, the other being Puerto Rico.

According to an ABC News report, Clinton won four delegates in addition to a previously pledged superdelegate. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders won two delegates.

Four other superdelegates have yet to endorse either of the candidates.

The Northern Mariana Islands holds its Republican caucuses next Tuesday.

Meanwhile, as expected, Senator Ted Cruz won the Wyoming caucus. With 100% of the polls reporting, Cruz was leading with 66.3% , and was followed by Marco with 19.5%.

Donald Trump, meanwhile, came in third in Wyoming with just 7.2% of the vote. Ohio Governor John Kasich did not earn any votes.

Wyoming is one of the few states that uses a multi-stage caucus spread out over a month and a half.

On March 1, registered Republican voters caucused across the state to choose representatives for the state and county conventions where the state’s 29 Republican National Convention delegates are actually chosen.

The second stage of the Wyoming caucus took place on Saturday.
