Democratic presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is being called as the winner of the Maine caucus election.
Sanders beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, 64 percent to 36 percent with 78 percent of precincts reporting. Sanders is set to pick up 14 delegates with the win, while Clinton will gain six delegates from Maine, according to the Associated Press.
"With another double-digit victory, we have now won by wide margins in states from New England to the Rocky Mountains and from the Midwest to the Great Plains," Sanders said in response to the win. "This weekend alone we won in Maine, Kansas and Nebraska. The pundits might not like it but the people are making history. We now have the momentum to go all the way to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia."
The next Democratic races will take place in Michigan and Mississippi on Tuesday, March 8.
The two Democratic candidates are currently engaged in a debate in Flint, Michigan, which is being aired on CNN.
