ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Bernie Sanders extended a string of victories on Saturday (April 9) by winning the U.S. presidential Democratic nominating contest in Wyoming, besting rival Hillary Clinton as they gear up for a crucial match-up in New York. Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, is trying to chip away at Clinton's sizable lead in the number of delegates needed to secure the party's nomination. Speaking in New York where he was campaigning ahead of the state's April 19 primary, Sanders said his campaign had picked up momentum after coming from behind. Wyoming's 14 Democratic delegates - fewer than any other state - will be awarded proportionally and will do little to help Sanders close the gap. Going into Wyoming, Clinton had more than half of the 2,383 delegates needed to win the nomination. Sanders trailed her by 250 pledged delegates, those awarded proportionate to the popular vote in the state nominating contests. Clinton's lead widens when superdelegates, Democratic leaders who can decide whom to support at the party's July convention, are included in the tallies.
