(elbcradio.com/Feb. 21, 2016) - U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has won the Nevada Democratic Caucuses.

She defeated Vermont Senator, Bernie Sanders 52.7 percent to 47.3 percent in the race for the party's 2016 Presidential nomination on Saturday, February 20, 2016.

Analysts said Clinton’s win showed that her national network of support remained formidable, and that Sanders must do more to appeal to Democrats beyond the young people who have formed the core of his campaign.

However, in South Carolina’s closely fought Republican primary, Donald Trump, has edged out his rivals with projections showing him capturing 32.5 percent of the vote.

Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz locked in a virtual tie for second, with each taking about 22 percent. Rubio finished with a slight edge.

After Trump's big victory in New Hampshire last week, his win Saturday was likely to solidify the billionaire real estate mogul as the Republican front-runner

Trump congratulated the other candidates, saying: “It is tough to run for president but “beautiful when you win.”
According to the VOA, Trump repeated elements of his stump speech, saying that when he becomes president, the United States will start winning again.

He looked forward to contests in multiple states on March 1st, called Super Tuesday, saying "let’s put this thing [Republican primary contest] away.”

About one-third of South Carolina voters are military veterans and exit polls showed that Trump won more veterans' votes than any of his Republican opponents.

Trump repeated elements of his stump speech, saying that when he becomes president, the United States will start winning again.
