Win for Clinton in Northern Mariana Islands

Hillary Clinton has won the Democratic caucus on Saturday on the Northern Mariana Islands, a US territory located in the Pacific Ocean near Guam. 

Clinton received 54 percent of 189 votes cast to earn four of the six delegates at stake. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders picked up two delegates. Heading into a batch of delegate-rich states on Tuesday, Clinton now has 766 delegates to Sanders’ 551, based on primaries and caucuses alone. When including superdelegates – party leaders who can support any candidate– Clinton’s lead is even bigger: 1,227 to Sanders’ 576. The Northern Mariana Islands is one of five US territories that help choose the Democratic nominee, even though they don’t get a vote in the November general election. It has a population of 52,000.
