Democratic voters in three states went to the polls on Saturday in the Democratic nominating contest, and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won Kansas and Nebraska while frontrunner Hillary Clinton took Louisiana.
Here are the results:

Kansas (caucuses)

Bernie Sanders has won the Kansas Democratic caucuses.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Sanders won 68 percent of the vote compared to 32 percent for Clinton. Delegates are allocated proportionally and there is a 15% threshold so both candidates will get delegates.
"The biggest states are yet to come. New York State, California, Oregon, Washington State. States that we think we can do very well in. Every state is important," Sanders said at a campaign event in Michigan on Saturday night. "Michigan is important. We’re going to win some, we’re going to lose some. But, I think basically that we have a path towards victory. I’m very proud, not only that we seem to be winning these states, but winning them with pretty big numbers.”

Nebraska (caucuses)

ABC News projects Bernie Sanders will win the Nebraska Democratic caucuses, based on analysis of the vote.

Louisiana (primary)

With 100 percent of the precincts reporting in, Hillary Clinton has won Louisiana Democratic primary.
Speaking Saturday night in Detroit, Michigan, Clinton congratulated Sanders for “running a strong campaign.”
“I am thrilled we are adding to our pledged delegate count. I am grateful to everyone who turned out to support us,” she said. “But now all eyes turn to Michigan. And I can tell you this we’re going to work for every vote.”
Clinton also criticized Republicans and said our politics has been “hijacked” by “extreme ideologues all across the country.”

  • Hillary Clinton: 71%
