Bernie Sanders Wants KY Recanvass Over 1 Delegate

Bernie Sanders’s campaign has requested a recanvass of Kentucky’s Democratic presidential primary, asking state election officials to review all voting machines and absentee ballots. Sanders trails Hillary Clinton by just 0.5 percent in the state—roughly 2,000 votes—but both candidates were given 27 delegates. The recanvass, however, will only determine how one delegate is allocated. According to the Associated Press, Sanders trails Hillary Clinton by 274 pledged delegates overall, but Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs said, “He’s in this until every last vote is counted and he’s fighting for every last delegate.” Voting took place in the state last Tuesday.
