Bernie Sanders won Alaska and Washington in the race for the Democratic presidency as he tried to close the gap against Hillary Clinton.
He was expected to win 72% of the vote in Washington against 27% for Hillary Clinton.
In Alaska, Bernie Sanders took about 79% of the vote, compared to 21% for Hillary Clinton.
The results are yet to come from Hawaii, but initial predictions suggest another victory for Bernie Sanders.
Washington was the most significant of the three states that voted on March 26, with 101 delegates to take. There were 16 delegates in Alaska and 25 in Hawaii.
Despite his victories, Bernie Sanders faces a struggle to change Hillary Clinton’s overall lead. Entering the vote on Saturday, Hillary Clinton led Bernie Sanders with 1,223 delegates to 920.
When the super-delegates, who have so far declared their loyalty, join, Hillary Clinton is ahead with 1,692 to 949.
2383 delegates are needed to win.
Bernie Sanders tweeted: “Thank you, Alaska!” Together, we send the message that this government belongs to all of us … Washington, thank you for your tremendous support! It is difficult for anyone to deny that our campaign has momentum. “
Earlier, the senator told his supporters in Wisconsin: “This is what momentum is all about. Don’t let anyone tell you that we can’t win the nomination or win the general election. We will do both. “
Bernie Sanders had spent a week on the West Coast, gathering support from liberals and the left.
He is trying to build on the overwhelming victories in the parliamentary group from last Tuesday in Idaho and Utah.
However, he was defeated in Arizona and although his representative from the three states was 20 taller than Hillary Clinton, he failed to enter its lead.
Hillary Clinton said she had “2.6 million more votes” than Bernie Sanders.
She campaigned less in the three countries that voted on March 26, perhaps in anticipation of defeat, and spent Easter with her family.
This week, Hillary Clinton focused on the deadly attacks in Brussels, condemning Republican rivals Donald Trump and Ted Cruz for their “reckless” foreign policy.
Despite the results of March 26, the battle will be won and lost in far larger countries that are yet to come. In the average RealClearPolitics polls, Hillary Clinton has a lead of Bernie Sanders with nine percentage points in California, 34 points in New York and 28 in Pennsylvania.
Calculations suggest that Bernie Sanders may have to win two-thirds of the other delegates – in the primary, associations and, among the hitherto unengaged superdelegates – unelected officials who can vote for their chosen candidate at the party’s election congress.
There was no vote in the Republican race on March 26.
Donald Trump is leading Ted Cruz from 739 delegates to 465, with a total of 1,237 needed to win the Republican nomination, according to the AP.
