(TargetLiberty.org) – The Nevada caucuses took place on Friday, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) was declared the winner.
The results in Nevada show something that members of the DNC have feared all along: the self-described Democratic Socialist has plenty of support. Sanders had 56% support for people under the age of 44, 49% for people who describe themselves as very liberal, and overwhelming support from the Hispanic community.
Former Vice President Joe Biden came in second place, which is his best finish so far. He’s still hopeful that he’ll win South Carolina, where he’s been leading in the polls.
Former South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg came in third, which was a surprise for many considering the close finish between him and Sanders in Iowa. It seems like Buttigieg might be questioning the results though. On Sunday, his campaign reached out to the Nevada State Democratic Party, claiming that “irregularities” in the early voting process affected the “in-person precinct caucus results.”
