Sen. Bernard Sanders won the Maine caucuses on Sunday night, racking up an impressive third win of the weekend, though he remains far behind Hillary Clinton in the all important delegate race.

The Associated Press and other news outlets called the race for the Vermont senator with about 76 percent of the vote in, and with Mr. Sanders ahead 64 percent to Mrs. Clinton’s 35 percent.

On Saturday, Mr. Sanders also claimed victories in contests in Nebraska and Kansas, while Mrs. Clinton handily won the Louisiana primary.

The two candidates also faced off Sunday night at a primary debate in Michigan, where voters will go to the polls on March 15.
