Clinton Wins PA Democratic Primary
After winning the primary in 2008 against Barack Obama, Clinton has now emerged victorious in the 2016 contest with Bernie Sanders.
The call was made not long after the polls closed.
With 99% of the precincts in, Clinton has 913,493 votes (56%) while Sanders recorded 715,527 votes (44%).
Clinton will take most of the state’s 189 pledged delegates. She has already secured 18 of the commonwealth’s 21 superdelegates and is likely to win the other three after tonight’s results.
Hillary also won the 2008 primary with President Barack Obama by a 55% to 45% margin. It remains to be seen how her margin in today’s contest will compare to 2008.
