Bernie Sanders wins Maine Democratic caucuses

US Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has won the Maine Democratic caucuses, according to US media projections.

With about 90 percent of the precincts reported on Sunday, Sanders had 64 percent of the vote to Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s 35 percent in Maine, where 30 delegates are at stake.

There were several reports of high turnout throughout the day.

The Maine caucuses result comes as Sanders and Clinton take the stage in Flint, Michigan, for Sunday night’s Democratic debate.

Sanders scored two crucial victories — the Kansas and Nebraska caucuses — while Clinton took the Louisiana primary on Saturday.

In an interview with ABC News on Sunday, Sanders said his campaign was happy about the states he won on “Super Saturday”.

“I think geographically, we are looking good. I think we have a path toward victory,” he stated.

The Vermont senator pointed out the higher voter turnout in Kansas, where he defeated Clinton 68 percent to 32 percent.

“In Kansas, they had the largest voter turnout in their caucus history. That was the case in Colorado, where we won as well,” he said.

“In every primary and caucus that we have won, we have won by double digit numbers and we’re winning all across the country,” he added.

Sanders has already achieved a column of double-digit victories in Minnesota, Colorado, Oklahoma, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Sanders’ emphasis on US income inequality and influence of corporate money on elections and government has helped him attract large crowds on the campaign trail.
