Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders secured his seventh consecutive nominating-contest victory after voters caucused in Wyoming, to give his campaign a fresh shot of momentum heading into New York’s pivotal primary later this month.

Sanders’s had 56 percent of the vote to front-runner Hillary Clinton’s 44 percent, yet the pair evenly split the state’s 14 delegates, meaning the win did nothing to narrow the Vermont senator’s disadvantage in pledged delegates. Wyoming will also send four superdelegates to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in July.
