Bernie Sanders wins Wyoming caucus

Cruz wins Colorado, Sanders takes Wisconsin 02:07

Put Wyoming in the victory column for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Sanders won the state's caucuses over Hillary Clinton, but the win isn't likely to help him make up much ground against in the delegate race that will decide nomination.

Wyoming awards just 14 delegates overall, and before Saturday's results, Clinton held a commanding lead of more than 200 pledged delegates.

Sanders addressed his state win at a rally in Long Island City, New York Saturday.

"News bulletin: We just won Wyoming," he told supporters after his wife delivered the news to him on stage. He joked: "There are probably more people in this room than there are in Wyoming."

"It's actually a very beautiful state," Sanders added. "We appreciate and thank the people of Wyoming so much for their support."

Her edge over Sanders is even greater when you count the party insiders who are known as superdelegates.

Sanders has dominated in states where Democrats make their presidential preference choice in a caucus - but there are only a few caucuses left on the election calendar.

Most of the states still to vote will hold primaries - contests where Clinton has generally performed better.
