For Democrats who had hoped to lure Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren into a presidential campaign, independent Sen. Bernie Sanders might be the next best thing. Sanders, who is opening his official presidential campaign Tuesday in Burlington, Vermont, aims to ignite a grassroots fire among left-leaning Democrats wary of Hillary Rodham Clinton. He is laying out an agenda in step with the party's progressive wing and compatible with Warren's platform _ reining in Wall Street banks, tackling college debt and creating a government-financed infrastructure jobs program.

Clinton Holds Off Sanders to Win Nevada Caucuses

LAS VEGAS — Buoyed by the support of enthusiastic workers in the city’s big casinos, Hillary Clinton defeated Senator Bernie Sanders in the Nevada caucuses on Saturday, thwarting his momentum and proving to an anxious Democratic Party that she maintains strong support among minority voters that she can carry into a general election.

    As bad as Bernie Sanders is Hillary is worse!

      I agree but I actually think that conservatives should be rooting for her. Trump (or Cruz) will stand a better chance against her than against the Bern – just a hunch, but others have suggested this as well.

    Reports are coming in that Hillary is ecstatic about the results!

    In this great victory for Hillary, less than 13,000 votes were cast. In other words, barely enough voters to fill a corner of Yankee Stadium.

      But she is loved and cherished by the NY Times.

      Don’t forget Hillary’s built in 7% dead vote advantage.
