SEATTLE –Bernie Sanders has won Washington’s Democratic presidential caucuses after tens of thousands of people met at schools, libraries and community centers across the state.

There are 118 delegates at stake in Washington, with 101 to ultimately be awarded proportionally based on the results of Saturday’s caucuses. The remaining 17 are technically unpledged party and elected leaders, though a majority of them — including Gov. Jay Inslee and the state’s Congressional delegation — have already said they support frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

Sanders was winning by large margins across the state.

Both candidates spent time in Washington this past week, with Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, making several stops and Sanders packing huge rallies in Seattle and elsewhere.

Sanders, a senator from Vermont, had raised $2.6 million in Washington state, while Clinton has raised about $2 million
