Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has claimed 16 of Utah’s 29 delegates to the Democratic National Convention. The Salt Lake Tribune reports the announcement by the Utah Democratic Party formalizes the Vermont senator’s victory in the state’s primary election. Utah was among 14 states participating in Super Tuesday contests March 3. Former Vice President Joe Biden gained seven delegates, while former New York Gov. Michael Bloomberg and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren tied with three delegates each. Utah was awarded six of the party’s so-called superdelegates, who represent the state but do not participate in the first round of nominee voting.
