Bernie Sanders, the aging socialist with a heart problem, has won the Nevada caucuses, bringing him another step closer to winning the Democrat nomination.
While Bernie’s supporters are thrilled, some Democrats know this might not work out so well for their party.
The Hill has details on the caucus:
Sanders wins Nevada caucuses
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) posted a decisive victory in the Nevada caucuses Saturday, cementing his status as the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination by turning out a diverse coalition of voters.
Early returns showed Sanders dominating among young people and Latinos, who make up nearly one-third of the electorate here. The Vermont senator also won several downtown Las Vegas caucus sites, underscoring his strong support among the labor union rank and file who are a powerful force in Nevada politics.
“In Nevada we’ve just put together a multi-generational, multi-racial coalition, which is going to not only win in Nevada, it’s going to sweep this country,” Sanders said to an enthusiastic crowd of supporters at a rally in San Antonio.
The Associated Press called the race for Sanders by 8 p.m. Saturday, Eastern Time.
Now the panic part.

They are panicking for good reason.
If Bernie is the Democrat nominee, Democrats are risking much more than just the presidential race.
They’re betting the farm.
