Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says it means so much to him to have won the Democratic primary in Vermont. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders thanked his home state of Vermont on Tuesday (March 1) for backing him on what he calls a campaign to transform America. "We want to win every part of the country, but it does say something and means so much to me that the people who know me best have voted so strongly to put us in the White House," Sanders said to roaring crow in Essex Junction. Sanders was projected by ABC and MSNBC to win his home state of Vermont, one of five states he was hoping to capture on Tuesday. His rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was projected to win Georgia, according to CNN. She was also projected to win Virginia and hoped to take a big step toward wrapping up her nomination fight with Sanders. Super Tuesday is the biggest single day of state-by-state contests to select party nominees for the Nov. 8 election to succeed Democratic President Barack Obama. Voting stretches from eastern states to Texas and Minnesota, with the first polls closing at 7 p.m. EST (midnight GMT) in Vermont, Virginia and Georgia.
