West Virginia primaries: Sanders defeats Clinton
Charleston: Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in West Virginia’s Democratic primary Tuesday.
While Ms Clinton’s loss will probably matter little to her presidential nominating battle with Sanders, it is a powerful reminder of her challenges in a general election matchup with Mr Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee. West Virginia has a large number of working-class white voters, the demographic Mr Trump is hoping will carry him to victory in Rust Belt states like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio in November. Ms Clinton’s performance in West Virginia — a state she won by a wide margin in the 2008 primaries — could point to problems with a critical voting bloc that supported her husband during the more economically prosperous 1990s.
