Sen. Berine Sanders made a clean sweep Saturday winning the Washington, Alaska and Hawaii primaries.
While Sanders took some three dozen pledged delegates Saturday, the exact number won't be released until the state of Washington determines who gets the pledged delegates who are allotted to the candidate who wins each congressional district.
According to The Associated Press, Sanders needs to win 67 percent of the remaining delegates and uncommitted superdelegates through June to win the Democratic nomination.
Where do they all stand today? Here are the current delegate counts.
For the Republicans:
Donald Trump – 739
Ted Cruz – 465
John Kasich – 143
The number needed to win the Republican nomination is 1,237 – that’s the number of delegates who have to vote for you at the GOP’s national convention in Cleveland in July.
As of Monday, there are 944 Republican delegates yet to be alloted.
On the Democratic side:
Clinton – 1,712 delegates, including 469 are superdelegates
Sanders – 1,004 delegates, including 29 superdelegates.
A Democratic candidate needs 2,383 delegates to win the nomination. There are still 2,049 Democratic delegates to be alloted.
