After a narrow victory over rival Hillary Clinton in Indiana’s primary race last Tuesday, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is projected to earn another win in West Virginia.

With 6% reporting, Sanders leads with 47.7% of the vote to Clinton's 43.3%

With 29 delegates up for grabs, Sanders is the projected winner. He will add to his 1,415 pledged delegates, closing in on Clinton’s 1,705.

Sanders has resisted calls to drop out of the race, pledging to continue on to the July convention. Unlikely to earn the required pledged delegates, the Senator said he will attempt to sway Clinton’s superdelegates into his camp.

The next Democratic primaries will be held in Kentucky and Oregon next Tuesday.
