Continuing a string of victories across the West, Senator Bernie Sanders won the Wyoming Democratic caucuses Saturday, chipping away at Hillary Clinton’s delegate lead before a major primary in New York next week.
With 96 percent of precincts reporting, The Associated Press declared Mr. Sanders the winner with 56 percent of the vote.
With just 14 delegates up for grab in Wyoming, the victory trims only a little from Hillary Clinton’s 219-delegate lead. But coming after Mr. Sanders’s recent big victories in Washington State, Alaska, Idaho, Utah, Hawaii and Wisconsin, it was more evidence of Mrs. Clinton’s weaknesses among white and liberal voters as the race moves to major primaries in New York and elsewhere in the Northeast.
It was the only contest of the day for the Democrats. In Colorado, Republicans were finishing their final round of voting at their state party convention Saturday in Colorado Springs. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas clinched a majority of the state’s 37 national delegates by Friday night.
