Hillary Clinton Wins Arizona Primary

Hillary Clinton cruised to an easy victory in Arizona, defeating challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) by over 20 points.

Arizona is a winner-take-all state, meaning that Clinton has now won all 75 delegates. Clinton also won Arizona when she ran for president in 2008.

This election was somewhat of a disappointment for Sanders, who spent the last week in Arizona and spent a significant amount of money in the state.

Sanders was never polling all that great in Arizona, and would have needed an upset of Michigan proportions to eke out a win. Unfortunately for the Sanders camp, lightning did not strike twice.
