Sanders beats Clinton in West Virginia primary

WASHINGTON || Democrat hopeful Bernie Sanders won the West Virginia state primary on Tuesday night against front-runner Hillary Clinton.

sanderThe win comes one week after the Vermont senator prevailed in Indiana’s Democratic primary and two weeks after Clinton dominated a series of contests in the northeastern US, NBC News reported.
