Hillary Clinton Just Delivered A Brutal Blow To Bernie Sanders

Bernie’s path forward just got a lot harder.

Ahead of Tuesday’s primaries, Clinton had 1,428 pledged delegates, while Sanders had 1,153. (Winning the nomination requires 2,382 delegates, including unpledged superdelegates.) In order to get on track to overtake Clinton in the delegate race, Sanders needed to win big in Tuesday’s contests. That didn’t happen. Clinton easily...
