Sanders wins: Washington & Lee projects Bernie Sanders to win democratic presidential nomination
LEXINGTON, Va. – When the votes were counted Saturday evening, Senator Bernie Sanders was in first place with 405 more votes than runner up Joe Biden, who received 1,237 votes. The votes, however, were not the necessary 1,991 to win the nomination, requiring a second round of voting. “That was decided by a combination of my research and the political team’s research,” said, Washington & Lee student Garrett Allen, the convention’s Virginia state chairman. Noah’s comments drew frequent applause from Washington and Lee students. “Trevor Noah was able to bring the comedy aspect of his routine, but also some really deep issues with his upbringing in apartheid South Africa,” Washington & Lee junior Jack Fencl said.
