With 61% of the vote in from the Nebraska Democratic caucus in, socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has defeated Hillary Clinton. Sanders was at 54.8% to Mrs. Clinton’s 45.2%.

Sen. Sanders was looking to jump-start his lagging, underdog campaign this weekend to create momentum moving into Tuesday night’s must-win Michigan primary. He was defeated soundly in the Louisiana Democratic Primary, which again gives the Clinton campaign an argument against his appeal among minority voters. Roughly half, if not more, of the electorate in the Pelican State is black.

Nevertheless, the victory gives Sen. Sanders, who says he is taking his campaign all the way to the convention, a justification to carry on and will give him a fundraising boost. The Sanders campaign is also looking to win Maine on Sunday when Democrats hold their caucus.
