CAUCUS & PRIMARY UPDATE: Sanders And Rubio Notch Wins

Today Sen. Bernie Sanders won the Maine Democratic caucus on Sunday, as projected by The Associated Press. Marking his eighth state victory Sanders defeated Clinton by a 2-to-1 margin. Maine held 533 caucuses at approximately 400 locations across the state with 30 delegates at stake.

On the Republican front, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida won the Puerto Rico primary on today which gave him a much-needed victory after a string of losses that threatened to end his presidential run further out of his reach. Since Rubio topped the 50% threshold required he will win all 23 of Puerto Rico's delegates.
