Democratic presidential candidate
Bernie Sanders won two states on Super Saturday, while Hillary Rodham
Clinton won Louisiana.
Sanders won by solid margins in
Nebraska and Kansas.
In a tweet to supporters, Sanders said
that his campaign had “the momentum, the energy and the excitement
that will take us all the way to the Democratic National Convention
Speaking to the AP, Sanders said that
Saturday's results show that he can win “decisively” over
Clinton, who maintains a commanding lead over Sanders with at least
1,117 delegates to his 477, including superdelegates.
On the Republican side, Texas Senator
Ted Cruz declared victories in Kansas and Maine “a manifestation of
a real shift in momentum.” Trump captured victories in two states,
Kentucky and Louisiana, while Florida Senator Marco Rubio won none.
“I would like to take on Ted
one-on-one,” Trump said at a news conference in West Palm Beach,
Florida. “That would be so much fun.”
Cruz echoed the thought, suggesting it
was time for Rubio, who has won only one state, and Ohio Governor
John Kasich, who has won none, to end their campaigns.
