Bernie Sanders has added Wisconsin to his list of recent wins.
The democratic senator from Vermont pulled out a victory over party front-runner Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s Wisconsin primary, according to polls fromReuters and the Associated Press.
“Wisconsin, today you sent a strong message: when we stand together there is nothing we cannot accomplish. Thank you!” Sanders tweeted following his win.
Of the 86 available delegates in the Badger State, Sanders secured 44 of them to Clinton’s 28, while also garnering 54 percent of the popular vote to the former Secretary of State’s 45 percent.
After Tuesday’s primary Sander has a total of 1,055 and Clinton has 1,740.
2,383 are needed to secure the nomination.
Sanders’ Wisconsin win is his sixth primary victory in a row, as he recently won Hawaii, Washington, Alaska, Utah, and Idaho and has continued to be vocally optimistic about his campaign as the race goes west.
“We knew things were going to improve as we headed West,” he said at a Wisconsin rally before the primary, according to CNN. “We have a path toward victory.”
