At Wisconsin rally, Sanders basks in twin wins

Basking in twin wins, Bernie Sanders says the West is putting him on path to an improbable success in the Democratic presidential race.

Despite his victories in Alaska and Washington state in the latest voting, Hillary Clinton remains in a far stronger position to capture the nomination.

Even so, Sanders told a spirited rally in Madison, Wisconsin: “We knew things were going to improve as we headed West.”

And he implored his cheering Wisconsin supporters to turn out in the state’s April 5 Democratic contest and advance him on a “path toward victory.”

He says he knew from the start of his campaign that he’d struggle in the Deep South but his fortunes would improve as the campaign went West.
