“Tonight is a turning point. Tonight is a rallying cry,” Mr. Cruz said at his election night party. “It is a call from the hardworking men and women of Wisconsin to the people of America: We have a choice, a real choice.” [ Source ]
Bernie Sanders deals Hillary Clinton another setback with Wisconsin victory
Sen. Bernard Sanders won the Wisconsin primary Tuesday, dealing another setback to Hillary Clinton and making it more likely that the Democratic presidential primary will continue all the way to the party convention in July.
Networks called the race at 9:20 p.m., just 20 minutes after the polls closed. With 1 percent of the vote in, Mr. Sanders was leading Mrs. Clinton 56 percent to 44 percent.
Exit polls showed Mr. Sanders carried independent voters, who could vote in the Democratic contest in Wisconsin’s open primary, and again fared well with younger voters and those looking for a more liberal agenda. [ Source ]
