Projection: Bernie Sanders Wins Utah

The Salt Lake Tribune reports:

Despite late efforts by moderates to combine forces against him, liberal Vermont senator and self-proclaimed democratic socialist Bernie Sanders jumped out to an early lead Tuesday in Utah’s Democratic presidential primary.

As early results showed Sanders with a lead of 32.7% of the vote shortly after polls closed, a group of more than a dozen supporters at an election watch party and potluck at the Teamsters & Chauffeurs Union in West Valley City erupted in cheers. “Bernie! Bernie! Bernie!” they chanted.
