In a historic upset, Bernie Sanders has won the Michigan primary.
Sanders sent out a message shortly after he was declared the winner, calling it a “major, game-changing victory for our campaign.”
Sanders also said in his message:
“The corporate media counted us out. the Pollsters said we were way behind. The Clinton super PACs spent millions against us across the country. We were hit with a dishonest attack in the debate. But we won, again…and if we continue to stand together, we can win this nomination.”
The Sanders campaign predicted that if there was a large turnout they would win in Michigan.
Every poll had Sanders trailing Clinton prior to the voting today. FiveThirtyEight.com projected Clinton as the winner with an enormous 99 percent probability.
With 97% of precincts reporting Sanders has just over 50% of the vote, with Hillary Clinton at 48%. That currently leaves Sanders with 65 delegates and Clinton with 58
Donald Trump was declared the winner for the Republicans in Michigan, with 36 percent of the vote.
