Sanders Wins Wyoming Caucus; Invited to Speak at Vatican

HeadlineApr 11, 2016

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders won the Wyoming caucus on Saturday, securing nearly 56 percent of the vote. He has now won seven of the last eight caucuses and primaries. Despite his recent victory streak, Hillary Clinton remains ahead by about 220 pledged delegates. On April 19, the candidates will square off in New York, the state where Sanders was born and where Clinton served as a U.S. senator. Just before the New York vote, Sanders will head to the Vatican, where he has been invited to give a speech about the economy.

Sen. Bernie Sanders: “And I must tell you that I am a very great fan of the role that Pope Francis has been playing in talking about inequality in this world. You know, it goes without saying that I have my strong disagreements with certain aspects of what the church stands for, but he has been out there talking about the need for a moral economy—a moral economy—an economy in which we have the moral responsibility to pay attention to what he calls 'the dispossessed.'”
