Bernie Sanders just scored a major victory in Washington—one of the largest remaining states. And with around 75 percent of the vote, the Sanders campaign finally got the sort of win its been aching for.
According to The Washington Post, Sanders will “pick up at least 50 net delegates—a sixth of the margin between the two candidates.” Sanders also defeated Clinton in Alaska earlier today, which—while nice for him—really only translates to a handful of delegates.
But does this win have anything to do with the delicate little bird that landed oh-so-gracefully on the Senator’s podium yesterday? It’s impossible to know for sure, but in all likelihood—yes.
