On Tuesday, 14 June, 2016 the primary election phase of the Election Year 2016 ended with the Democrat Party primary election in Washington D. C. Polls closed at 8:00PM. Boom! There it is. What started this year with the caucus elections in Iowa on Monday, 01 February, 2016 has now ended. The Republican primary election in Washington D. C. was already conducted on Saturday, 12 March, 2016, so there is no Republican primary election in Washington D. C. today.
The election return results tonite are thus with 99% of the returns reported: Hillary Clinton won the election with 74,566 votes and 79% of the votes cast and Bernie Sanders lost the election with 19,990 votes and 21% of the vote. The difference between the two results is 54,576 votes.
If you include the super delegates then the delegate counts for the primary election phase stand at these totals: Hillary Clinton with 2797 and Bernie Sanders with 1892. What happens next? Preparations for the Democratic National Convention with decisions to be made on platform, positions and exactly what Bernie Sanders will do next as well the future of Debbie Wasserman- Schultz as Chair of the Democratic National Committee, the future of super delegates and other issues as well.
Also on Tuesday nite, there was a meeting in Washington D. C. with Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. They did not speak to media after the meeting so there are no details on what was discussed. But the approximately one hour and a half meeting is likely to have some tangible result in the coming days. One Clinton campaign staffer reportedly stated that the meeting was “very positive”. What does that mean? Stay tuned, politicos. One phase ends and another begins.
The large backlog of provisional ballots from the poorly conducted election in California are still being counted. And all this after 50 people were killed on Sunday of this week at the Pulse night club in Orlando, Florida. For the 50, their lives ended. For other people life goes on, forever altered.
