Original story: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump took the top spots in Saturday’s Democratic caucuses in Nevada and the South Carolina Republican primary, respectively.
According to the Associated Press and entrance polls, “Clinton prevailed in Nevada with the backing of women, union workers, minorities, moderates and voters who are certain she will have a better shot at winning in November.”
With this win in the Silver State, Clinton is expected to pick up at least 18 of the 35 delegates at stake in Nevada, states the AP story. Runner-up Bernie Sanders is expected to get 14 delegates.
In South Carolina, Donald Trump claimed victory while senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are in a fight for second place, states the AP. Trump previously won the New Hampshire primary and took second place at the Iowa caucuses.
