Bernie Sanders Wins Wisconsin Primary, Extending Winning Streak

HeadlineApr 06, 2016

In the race for the White House, Tuesday was a big night for the underdogs, as Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republican Ted Cruz secured decisive victories in the Wisconsin primary. Sanders beat rival Hillary Clinton by winning over 56 percent of the vote. Ted Cruz easily defeated front-runner Donald Trump by 13 percentage points. Sanders spoke during a rally Tuesday night in Wyoming, which holds its caucus on Saturday.

Sen. Bernie Sanders: “With our victory tonight in Wisconsin, we have now won seven out of eight of the last caucuses and primaries. And we have won almost all of them with overwhelming landslide numbers.”
