West Virginia went to the polls in the Democratic primary to choose between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Polls had been close between the candidates and there was fear that Clinton’s stance on coal may hurt her in the state. Sanders won the primary by a margin of 51.4% to 35.8%. With two other Democrats on the ballot receiving votes, the delegate count was important and Sanders came out ahead in the delegate count, but ultimately netted a few pledged delegates over Clinton. The next Democratic primaries are next Tuesday, May 17, when voters in Kentucky and Oregon will head to the polls.
