Bernie Sanders has won the two Democratic caucuses of the night in Kansas and Nebraska, but Hillary Clinton countered with a big win in the Louisiana primary, reports CNN. The network called the latter race soon after polls closed at 9 Eastern, with African-American voters again giving her an easy victory. With 58 delegates at stake, Louisiana is the single biggest prize of the night. Kansas has 37 at stake and Nebraska 30. Which means that while Sanders has bragging rights after winning two of three, "the results were not likely to alter the broader contours of a race in which Mrs. Clinton maintains a significant delegate lead," observes the New York Times.
