Following presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’s first-place finish in the New Hampshire Democratic Primary on Tuesday, rival Hillary Clinton, who finished a distant second, is set to gain the same amount of delegates in the state.
Sanders, who won the state’s primary with 151,584 votes over Clinton’s 95,252 votes, gained 13 delegates and The Hill reported that Sanders is expected to officially receive 15 when the total results are in.
While Clinton won 9 delegates, Clinton also reportedly has the support of 6 superdelegates.
“New Hampshire has 8 superdelegates, 6 of which are committed to Hillary Clinton, giving her a total of 15 delegates from New Hampshire as of Wednesday at 9 a.m.,” the Daily Caller reported.
The Hill reported that “superdelegate support is fluid, though, so some of those delegates now backing Clinton could switch to Sanders” ahead of the Democratic National Convention, “but as it stands, the superdelegate support gives Clinton a total of 15 New Hampshire delegates.”
CNN’s most recent estimate claims that Clinton has 431 delegates total and Sanders has 52 delegates. An estimate from the Associated Press has provided different numbers, claiming that Clinton has 394 delegates and Sanders has 42.
