As the Democratic presidential primary heads to high-stakes contests in New York and Pennsylvania, Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign says it's confident that he'll secure the nomination if he wins the most "pledged" delegates to the national convention.

Democratic voters in Wyoming have decided: Sen. Bernie Sanders has won the state's caucuses, according to The Associated Press. But the victory over Hillary Clinton will not ensure Sanders more delegates. The state's 14 delegates will be split evenly between the two candidates.

​Hillary for America Campaign Manager Robby Mook released the following statement on Clinton's tie in pledged delegates in Wyoming:

Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders won the Wisconsin primaries Tuesday night, an important step for both candidates as they look to stop their leading rivals and close their delegate gaps.

For the Republican Texas senator, he's on pace for a nearly double-digit win over Donald Trump, increasing the likelihood of a contested Republican convention this July in Cleveland.

There's a lot on the line for both parties in Tuesday's Wisconsin contest. For Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, the state is a prime chance to stop Donald Trump and complicate the GOP front-runner's path to the nomination. For Bernie Sanders, a win over Hillary Clinton helps close his delegate deficit and gives the Vermont senator new momentum heading into the next stretch of the primary calendar.

This chaotic political year is marked by deep disagreements and resentment, both within and across party lines. But regardless of one’s political stance, many people seem to agree on one thing: The media is failing in its coverage of the 2016 election.

Vermont's governor won’t say whether he'd ever throw his support behind Sen. Bernie Sanders at this summer's Democratic National Convention.

Bernie Sanders swept all three Democratic caucuses that were held on Saturday, according to the Associated Press.

He took each state by a striking margin. In Washington state — the biggest prize for Sanders, where 101 pledged delegates were up for grabs — Sanders won with 73 percent of the vote.

In Alaska, with 16 pledged delegates were at stake, Sanders won with 82 percent; and in Hawaii, with 25 delegates, the senator from Vermont won with 70 percent.

Even though former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won all five primaries last week, top campaign officials for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders insist that the Vermont senator still has a reasonable chance to win the nomination.

The results from Tuesday's four primary and caucus states are in: three wins for Trump, one each for Clinton and Cruz, and one surprising, narrow victory for Sanders.

Bernie Sanders' tight win over Hillary Clinton in Michigan is the biggest news out of Tuesday night's presidential nomination races. Though Clinton had led consistently in recent polls, Sanders won by less than 2 percentage points with 99 percent of precincts reporting.

After a raucous celebration of his fat-margin win in Vermont Tuesday evening, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ top campaign advisers held a more restrained breakfast meeting with reporters Wednesday.

There’s no place like home, as Bernie Sanders learned Tuesday evening. The Vermont senator returned to the Green Mountains for Super Tuesday – and the same Vermonters who sent him to Congress gave him a lopsided win in this state’s presidential primary.
