Hillary Clinton is the projected winner of the not-super-important Guam caucuses, the Hill reports. According to Politico, unofficial results have Clinton winning with 60% of the vote to Bernie Sanders' 40%. Both Clinton and Sanders had done minimal campaigning in Guam, with Sanders promising to visit if he's elected president and Chelsea Clinton publishing an op-ed in the Pacific Daily News. With only seven pledged delegates up for grabs, the results in Guam are unlikely to change the look of the election. But Clinton's victory, if nothing else, keeps Sanders from putting a streak together. He won the Indiana primary this week and is likely to win the contests coming up in West Virginia and Oregon.

Despite losing in Guam, Sanders was actually the day's winner when it comes to delegates. The AP reports new data out of Washington tossed an extra 49 delegates from that state's March caucuses to Sanders. Clinton only picked up 18. Sanders had already earned 25 of the 34 delegates awarded on the day of the primary. More data was needed before divvying up the state's remaining 67 delegates. Regardless, Clinton remains poised to clinch the Democratic nomination early next month. (More Guam stories.)
